NO NCP conference on sustainable migration from poor to rich countries (Oslo)
This conference is entitled 'Sustainable migrration from poor to rich countries - Towards a new refugee and migration system?'. It will address the challenges and sustainability of today’s migration. There is a growing call for a more holistic and sustainable approach to migration policy.
In public discourse across Europe, policy-makers, researchers and others are addressing the challenges and sustainability of today’s migration. There is a growing call for a more holistic and sustainable approach to migration policy, which also addresses analysis of the long-term consequences for individuals, societies and states affected. The aim of the conference is to present and discuss a framework for understanding sustainable migration, which may help guide and inform governments and elected politicians.
The topic is relevant to both practitioners, policy-makers and others engaged in migration issues. The conference is fortunate to have Professors Paul Collier and Alexander Betts from the University of Oxford as key note speakers. Research Professor Jørgen Carling will present PRIO’s definition of “Sustainable migration” and representatives from UNHCR, EU and Norwegian migration officials, as well as other top migration researchers, will participate in the conference as speakers and panellist.
Questions to be addressed at the conference include:
- Challenges with the current refugee and migration system?
- Is sustainable migration a useful concept for analysis and policy?
- What values and principles should form the basis of a sustainable migration framework?
- What is the relevance and applicability of a new sustainable framework to the UN, EU, and to Norway?
