Impact of COVID-19 on migration and mobility
COVID-19 is having a long-term effect on mobility and migration. It is also bringing a variety of political and societal challenges with it. Profound structural changes of the type and direction of present migration flows are affecting not only migrant workers and international students, but also refugees and those who have been displaced internally. What do these developments mean for managing migration and mobility in the future?
Technological development and the future of work
Technological and digital developments are currently fundamentally changing the world of work. This will have an impact on future ways of working, labour mobility and migration. What will these look like in a transformed world of work?
Climate change – impact on migration
The effects of global warming on society are omnipresent. And they will become more noticeable in future. That will also have an influence on global migration processes. How are climate change and migration connected? Discussions will consider migration decisions, migration paths, humanitarian needs and political options.
Conditions for fair migration
Shaping migration in a way that gives equal consideration to the interests of all migrants, countries of origin, transit and destination remains a huge challenge. What constitutes fair and just conditions for migration in the working world of tomorrow seen from different perspectives?
On the last day of the conference, there will be a further plenary session and a high-level discussion. The most important insights into each of the main topics will also be summarised.
