    2015 FIGT Conference
    March 6-8, 2015

    Finding "Home": Amidst Global Change

    Save the Date for the 2015 FIGT Annual Conference
    Registration Details Coming Soon!

    2015 Request for Proposals: Do you have a personal history to share, a work philosophy, a special expertise, research findings, or strategies for successful international relocation? If so, FIGT wants to hear from you.

    Our responsibilities as global citizens matter now -- more than ever. As our "global village" is undergoing change at an accelerated pace, finding "home" remains the cornerstone for building a successful life. "Home" is both the brick-and-mortar house we choose to live in and our inner sense of who we are. But how do individuals and families create this sense of belonging when their worlds keep changing?

    Researchers, government agencies, mobility experts and expat supporters across all professional sectors are uniquely positioned to help answer these questions. They range from "Where do I belong?" to "What is my role in the world?" Where is "home" for global families during a work reassignment, after an evacuation or financial collapse, when dealing with a divorce or elder care from abroad, or after the return to one's passport country? Where am I from when there's no single place or culture to return to? How can I use my day-to-day experience crossing cultures to contribute to the world in a sustainable way?

    FIGT invites you to share your leading-edge research, expertise and experience; raise big questions; and create practical tools for global families -- in all their variations -- to challenge what "home" means and to find belonging in our world today.

    FIGT is now inviting proposals for its 2015 conference. The target audience is individuals and families who have undergone an international relocation, and the companies, agencies, researchers and organizations that sponsor and support them.  If successful, you would be presenting at this year's conference. Click here for details.
