Organizer: National Contact Point Austria in the European Migration Network
The current movement of migrants to Europe is challenging at many different levels, especially for migrants, who all too often risk their lives. A differentiated view on migration goals, migration routes and the underlying motives for migration is necessary when trying to identify alternatives for supporting migrants in their regions of origin. In this context, the National Contact Point Austria in the European Migration Network (EMN) has organized a conference with more than 50 (inter)national experts with various backgrounds.
The morning session discussed migration movements to Europe as well as different methods of data collection. In the afternoon, the participants discussed alternatives for supporting migrants in their regions of origin, with these issues further developed later in interactive workshops. Based on impulse statements, the strategies six broad subject areas were elaborated.
The conference report gives an overview on all presentations and results.
