Executive Training “Migration in the EU and its Neighbourhood”
Monday 21 January 2013 - Thursday 24 January 2013 , Florence
- Migration Policy Centre (MPC) within the framework of the CARIM-East project
- International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) through the Prague Process Targeted Initiative
- Global Governance Programme (GGP)
International migration has become an all-important issue for the world as a whole, and for the European Union and its neighbourhood in particular. The history has shown that migration is not only an important force driven by and driving economic transition; it is also a pivotal element of social change.
The first Executive Training on Migration offered a venue to analyze and discuss the interactions of the regions of origin and the regions of destination; migration policies and the regulation of migration; and processes of integration. Teaching was accompanied by research work and practical debate. Participants were encouraged to translate perceived societal problems into social scientific research questions, and to contribute to the solution of these problems by combining insights from demographic, economic, legal and sociological approaches. It was followed by a Workshop on Data Gathering and Analysis for the Purpose of Development of Migration Profiles. The Executive Training and the Workshop gathered civil servants and officials from Eastern Partnership countries and Russian Federation.
