Understanding and Tackling the Migration Challenge - conference webstream
A two-day conference on "Understanding and Tackling the Migration Challenge" is taking place in Brussels on 4 and 5 February 2016. The conference is organised by the European Commission's Directorate General for Research and Innovation, to explore and demonstrate how European research can support policy makers in designing effective and sustainable migration policies.
To this end, past and current research on migration are presented and debated from a policy perspective at the event. Findings from social sciences and economic research feature at the conference alongside short to long-term health care needs of migrants as well as the link between climate change and current and future migratory processes. The identification of future research needs, both immediate and long-term, is a cross cutting theme. The Science4Refugees initiative, designed to identify and provide opportunities for refugees with scientific qualifications within the European Research Area, is also presented at the event. Leading researchers in the field of migration, including many coordinators from EU funded research projects, EU and national policy makers as well as other relevant stakeholders are participating in the conference.
