6th European Migration Forum meeting
The topic of this year's edition is From pandemic to recovery: challenges and best practices in migration management.
The forum is a platform for dialogue between civil society and the European institutions on issues relating to migration, asylum and the integration of third-country nationals (TCNs), and is run by the European Commission (EC) and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).
The theme of this meeting is From pandemic to recovery: challenges and best practices in migration management.Discussion will focus specifically on:
- the digital divide and digital disadvantage of migrants;
- access to education for migrant children;
- safe legal pathways for those in need of international protection;
- how to maximise integration in hosting societies.
In addition, there will be discussion on the Commission’s New Pact on Migration and Asylum and the different legislative and non-legislative initiatives that have been presented recently, including the new Action plan on integration and inclusion 2021-2027.
A limited number of participants will be able to present successful projects to others at a networking marketplace, and workshops, discussion islands and other participation opportunities will be organised. All participants will be expected to contribute to discussions and work in groups.
Expressions of interest in participation in the event can be submitted until 20 August 2020.
