Migration in The Western Mediterranean26 October 2017. From 17:30 | Workshop | English | Milano
The international seminar on the management of migration in the Western Mediterranean has several sessions that over two days address the movements of migrants and refugees through the western Mediterranean region, as well as the challenges and opportunities for the countries of the 5 + 5 Dialogue.
The first session aims to discuss the flows of migrants and refugees in the Mediterranean that have intensified since the 2011 Arab revolutions, as well as the challenges and opportunities they involve for the 5+5 Dialogue countries. It also seeks to analyze the responses of national and European authorities to a crisis affecting the region as a whole, particularly since 2013.
The following sessions address other different aspects of migration management in the Western Mediterranean region, such as assessing the destabilising impact that the flows of migrants and refugees in the Maghreb countries can have; or the possibilities that Europe has to offer in order to facilitate migration towards its member states and thus avoid human tragedies at its borders.The event is organised by the MedThink 5+5 think tank network and coordinated by the IEMed, in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean and the Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI).
