YEL Discussion Forum on Migration: June 22nd in Brussels
The Young European Leadership Discussion Forum on migration focusses on the challenges of integrating refugees and migrants in European societies, with a local and European perspective. The speakers will discuss a number of topics such as the root causes of migration towards Europe, the benefits it brings to its ageing society, potential ways to reach complete integration and how to develop efficient migration policies. The debate addresses questions concerning regulation of migration policies, integration and measures to be taken in countries of origin from a European and local perspective.
The event is organised by Young European Leadership in collaboration with Debating Europe.
