This year’s Europe in the World Lecture on Thursday 1 May tackles the controversial subject of Migration: Facing up to a Global Challenge.

Migration: Facing up to a Global Challenge

An iCES event in association with the Senior European Experts
Tuke Hall, Regent’s University London
The event will be followed by a reception in the University

From the fractious debate about whether to grant legal status to illegal entrants in the United States, to the anxieties about free movement in the European Union, migration is once again a key topic on the political agendas of Western politicians.?

But this is a truly global issue, even if seen from London through a European prism. Three per cent of the world’s population, some 214 million people, now live outside their country of origin. This vast movement of people has created huge challenges as populations shift from rural to urban areas, as the number of women migrants rises and as so many of those currently on the move are fleeing conflict.

How should the world respond, especially here in Europe? Is migration always good for the economy of the receiving country? Can emigration damage the developing world? Can migration flows in fact be controlled in a world of easy travel? These and are just some of the myriad challenges posed by migration today.

This year the Regent’s Europe in the World event takes on a new dimension as we tackle this complex but hugely significant issue in the format of an open discussion.? We are delighted to have four eminent contributors who will open the proceedings with short presentations:

Speakers:

Peter Sutherland: UN Special Representative on Migration and former Director General of WTO
Lord Hannay of Chiswick: Member of the House of Lords EU Select Committee; & Chair of the Senior European Experts
Roland Rudd: Chairman, Business for New Europe and RLM Finsbury
Professor Ibrahim Sirkeci: Professor of Transnational Studies and Marketing and the Director of the Regent’s Centre for Transnational Studies

Read more about the panel

The discussion will be informed by a background paper prepared by the Senior European Experts which will be distributed beforehand.? Audience participation will be welcome and the proceedings will be made available afterwards, both to those present and more widely to contribute to the continuing debate.

Registration: Please register here to confirm your place by Thursday 24 April. For any questions, please contact: lectures@regents.ac.uk.

This event is supported by the European Commission.
