Natolin Neighbourhood Days 2019 - "The Many Faces of Migration Governance in Today’s EU and its Neighbourhood"

A series of three events organised by the Natolin Academy of Migration (NAM) in the European Neighbourhood Policy Chair seeks to stimulate a more informed academic and policy debate about the drivers, implications and outcomes of the "governance of migration". The participants of this year’s edition of the Natolin Neighbourhood Days will have the opportunity to learn whether the governance of migration and its ethos are closely connected with today’s broader societal challenges pertaining, among others, to the relationship between states and citizens, differentiated forms of membership and unequal access to opportunities.

The first event, a high-level lecture opening the series, will offer a broad picture of the stakes at play in the governance of migration in today’s EU and its neighbourhood, both with reference to migrants’ enhanced exposure to vulnerabilities, forms of social exclusion and their implications for foreigners and citizens alike.

At the second event, two well-known scholars will discuss the impact of soft law on the governance of migration. EU Member States are increasingly making use of soft law in order to respond to the management of migration (be it regular or irregular).

The third event will mobilise three speakers in the framework of a moderated conversation. One practitioner, one representative of a civil society organisation, and one journalist working on migration matters will interact and debate the drive for temporary migration in EU policies and its implications for migrants’ access to rights. The rationale for this discussion is to invite the audience to think beyond the oft-cited reference to migrants’ conditions and to realise that the drive for temporariness might have broader consequences on migrants and citizens alike.
