Beyond Irregularity: Finding effective policy solutions to irregular migration through transnational cooperation
Responding to irregular migration in ways that address the human rights concerns of migrants but are also acceptable to policy makers and publics in destination and transit countries is a significant challenge that has not yet been adequately addressed.
Friday 14 June 2013, 9.00 - 17.00
Albert Borschette Conference Centre, Brussels
The extension of European Union migration policies beyond European territory, the changing political situation in the Maghreb, and the relationship between migration and development makes this is a policy area that demands transnational solutions. Yet responses to this issue remain largely national.
Book now to join speakers and participants from Europe, Morocco and sub–Saharan Africa at a high-level conference to debate new responses to irregular migration.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Frank Paul (DG Home European Commission)
- Abdellah Boussouf (CCME, Morocco)
- Dr Chi-Chi Aniagolu-Okoye (The Development Research and Projects Centre, Nigeria)
- Myriam Cherti (IPPR, UK)
- Milka Boyani Isinta (Pan African Network in Defence of Migrants’ Rights (PANiDMR), Kenya)
- Claire Rodier (Migreurop)
The Beyond Irregularity project has sought innovative responses to irregular migration through new and innovative research in Nigeria, Morocco and the UK. The project has generated new insights into the transnational causes of irregularity through detailed research on human trafficking between Nigeria and the UK, migrants ‘in transit’ in Morocco and the return and reintegration of irregular migrants to Nigeria and Morocco.
Bringing together the perspectives of speakers and participants from a range of organisations and countries this conference will provide an opportunity to:
- Hear about new research, policy thinking and practice in this area
- Debate with speakers and participants from across Europe and Africa to identify shared challenges, interests and goals
- Identify practical solutions to irregular migration
