Conference on Migration and Development

Conference on Migration and Development


Towards a common agenda for Africa and Europe? Opportunities and obstacles

Migration, climate change, insecurity and inequality strongly affect countries in Africa as well as in Europe. Is it possible to tackle these issues through a common agenda based on shared interests? Where can we find realistic opportunities for co-operation without turning to wishful thinking? And which practical steps should be taken at the national, European and African level

Five eminent speakers will explore these questions at this conference organised by Globalisation Studies Groningen and SIB-Groningen on 14 December. In an active exchange with you and the other participants, we will discuss topics such as labour migration, energy/climate, social inclusion, and migration agreements. You are warmly invited because your input is needed. Let’s think together!

The event will take place in the Doopsgezinde Kerk (Oude Boteringestraat 33, Groningen, the Netherlands) and will last from 11.00 to 15.30, including coffee/tea and lunch. Participation is free.

More information can be found on the webpage of Globalisation Studies Groningen.
