MIXED MIGRATION REVIEW 2019

About this Event

Feet on today’s ground but sights on tomorrow’s futures

What does the future hold for migration, refugees, mixed migration and irregular mobility? What is the future labor migration and asylum space, considering the shift towards increased nationalism and moves against multinationalism at a time when the world is facing global problems that need coherent joint approaches? How will the issues of displacement and forced migration be affected by inequality, poor governance, environmental stressors and the international community’s response to these challenges? Can we realistically predict or forecast what the future trends will be?

In November 2019, the Mixed Migration Centre published the Mixed Migration Review 2019 focusing on the future of mixed migration in relation to changes in a broad range of areas such as the securitization of migration, the climate, artificial intelligence, the economy, demographics and politics. During the Infopoint session three selected topics of the MMR 2019 will be presented and discussed.
