Organizer: National Contact Point Austria
In the framework of the Austrian EU Presidency the Austrian National Contact Point in the European Migration Network (EMN) organized the EMN Annual Conference 2018 with the title “Managing Migration – from Reacting to Shaping” on 4 and 5 October, 2018. More than 200 representatives of the EU, EU Member States and Non-EU countries, as well as of international organizations, NGOs and academia participated in the conference. In three thematic panels, the 18 distinguished speakers dealt with migration cooperation between the EU and third countries, the return and reintegration of migrants, as well as local protection and support measures for migrants and displaced persons.
The National Contact Point produced a conference report, which summarizes the contributions of the speakers, as well as the discussions and main conclusions of the panels. The report is available in English and German.
