Border Stories event on innovative research into migration generates considerable public interest

On the 3rd of February, London Higher Europe successfully organised the event Border Stories: From there to here. How innovative research into personal experiences can help the EU address Intra EU mobility and Third Country Migration. The event took place at London House in Brussels.

This event brought together policy, research and practice in migration studies with a particular focus on understanding the social context of migration and migrants, both at home and in their new countries.

The event aimed at answering the following questions: How can academic research help policy makers frame the best policies to manage the emerging reality of internal and external migration across the EU? This event brings together policy, research and practice in migration studies with a particular focus on understanding the social context of migration and migrants, both at home and in their new countries, as it pertains to young people and the non-migrants who now find themselves at the very heart of the immigration debate. It poses the question: how can we use what we have learned from past and current migrations to craft effective but fair social policy to better manage the current process of migration and ease integration for both the migrant population and their host countries?
