5th International Metropolis Conference
The Metropolis Project creates opportunities for government decision-makers, researchers, and non-governmental agents to discuss policies and programs for integrating immigrants and minorities and for effectively managing the impact of immigration and diversity on city life. Metropolis fosters exchanges that go beyond the stating of positions, beyond descriptions, and beyond advocacy. The Project provides unique opportunities for stakeholders who share a vision of improving society through collaboration and partnership to engage each other, to acknowledge problems openly, and to work, unfettered, to solve them.
