14 DEC | Conference on Migration and Development: Towards a common agenda for Africa and Europe? Opportunities and obstacles

21 November 2018
Migration and Development


When: 14 December 2018, 11:00 - 16:00 (welcome for coffee/tea from 10.30)
Location: Doopsgezinde Kerk (Oude Boteringestraat 33, Groningen)
Entrance: free, registration requested

Migration, climate change, insecurity and inequality strongly affect countries in Africa as well as in Europe. Is it possible to tackle these issues through a common agenda based on shared interests? Where can we find realistic opportunities for co-operation without turning to wishful thinking? And which practical steps should be taken at the national, European and African level?

Four eminent speakers will explore these questions at this conference organised by Globalisation Studies Groningen and SIB-Groningen on 14 December. In an active exchange with you and the other participants, we will discuss topics such as labour migration, energy/climate, social inclusion, and migration agreements. You are warmly invited because your input is needed. Let’s think together!

The event will take place in the Doopsgezinde Kerk (Oude Boteringestraat 33, Groningen, the Netherlands) and will last from 11.00 to 15.30, including coffee/tea and lunch. Participation is free.

The conference is an initiative of prof. Max van den Berg, Honorary Professor of Global Governance and Sustainable Livelihood, and organized by Globalization Studies Groningen in collaboration with the student organization SIB.
