Dear IMISCOE-Members,

I am very glad to inform you that we were able to postpone the IMISCOE Conference in Luxembourg to next year. I would like to thank the organisers of the Oslo-Conference – Oslo Metropolitan University, which would have hosted the IMISCOE Conference in 2021 in collaboration with the Peace Research Institute Oslo, the Institute for Social Research, and the Fafo Research Foundation – for agreeing to postpone their conference to 2022!

Please mark your calendars: the 18th IMISCOE-conference will take place in Luxembourg from July 7 to July 9, 2021.

The conference theme ‘Crossing borders, connecting cultures’ remains relevant and we will stay with this theme. Yet, in light of the current developments, the new Call for Papers we have issued also invites your contributions on inequalities in general and on health and racial in equalities in particular.

More information on the postponed conference will follow.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in person next summer on the Campus Belval in Luxembourg!

Birte Nienaber

Chair of the local organising committee
