Aim and Scope
Please join us at the 4th International Conference on Urban Studies. This year’s theme revolves around borders and mobility. As border issues continue to grow and discussions on the topic extend worldwide, our conference’s scope this year will focus on the definition of mobility and its effect on individuals, language, literature, safety and well-being, amongst other related issues. From Syrian refugees fleeing war zones to Indonesian citizens being removed from their homes, border issues and mobility affect us all. We aim for our conference to be a celebration of knowledge and idea sharing between researchers, educators, students, NGOs and representatives from the Indonesian Government. We hope the discussions at the conference will further extend dialogues to better understand issues related to borders and mobility at both local and global levels. We look forward to seeing you there.
