Questions concerning migration and refugees made the headlines around the world in recent years amid wars in many locations coinciding with economic crises and slow down. Migration as a subject and migration studies as a field are ever more popular, and Migration Letters supported the 4th Turkish Migration Conference (, which attracted about 400 participants to the University of Vienna. Some 350 papers were presented in plenary and parallel sessions over four days from 12 to 15 July 2016. In summer 2016, Europeans debated how to reduce the influx of unwanted foreigners and integrate those who are settling, the US presidential campaign featured candidate Donald Trump calling for a wall on the Mexico-US border and the deportation of 11 million unauthorized foreigners, and the British voted 52-48 percent to leave the EU because of “too much” intra-EU migration.
