Thinking beyond the crisis: Future governance of migration in Europe


Labour migration and mobility are, and will continue to be, key dynamics in the Euro-Mediterranean region. They are central to the social, economic and political development of the region. As a direct result, they are also key components of relations between the European Union, EU member states and countries in the Middle East and North Africa. The European Union needs therefore to devise a long-term comprehensive governance model. This event, co-organised by the Migration Policy Centre (MPC) at the European University Institute (EUI) and the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), will provide an opportunity to debate the future governance of migration in Europe.

Registration from 9.30 – Meeting from 10.00 to 13.00

Participation in this event is free of charge. A light lunch will be provided from 13.00.

Photo, Audio and Video recording will take place during this event for the purpose of creating awareness and distributing information on the event.

This event is made possible through the support of the IOM Development Fund and the US State Department's Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration.
