Organizing Committee  

There have been continued internal disagreements within the Metropolis Network as where to host the 2020 International Metropolis Conference. This was followed by specific attempts of some outsiders to politicize this conference.


The Center for China and Globalization has taken the decision to make changes but to continue organizing an international conference.


We welcome all scholars, experts and practitioners to consider taking part and attending our


2020 International Conference on Global Migration and Talent Mobility

Beijing, June 12-14, 2020


This conference will be organized by the Center for China and Globalization, in close collaboration with the Metropolis Asia and Metropolis China community, international organizations and other established partner institutions from China and around the world.


We wish to thank you for your continued interest in our work and our conference.

With our best wishes for the holidays and the year 2020.
