Unlocking the Potential of Migrants in Europe – Brussels – 2 July 2014

Public Policy Exchange - Google ChromeThe Europe 2020 Strategy and the Stockholm Programme recognise the potential of migration for building a competitive and sustainable economy. Currently, however, there are wide socio-economic disparities between third-country nationals and EU citizens, with immigrants experiencing higher rates of unemployment, over-qualification, low economic achievement, low income and poor health.

MIPEX_sliderThree years on since the renewed European Agenda for the Integration of Third-Country Nationals, this international symposium provides a good opportunity to discuss the current challenges of migration and integration in Europe, and to reignite the debate about an EU-wide strategy to improve integration policies across Member States.

graphsMPG Programme Director Thomas Huddleston will be speaking on measuring migration and integration:

  • Comparing Integration Policies and Monitoring Systems Across Europe
  • Collecting Better Data on Migration – Introducing the MIPEX Project and the Equality Data Initiative
  • Assessing Social Cohesion and Integration of Migrants
  • Examples of Best Practices
