Migration

We are convening a second workshop on May 10-12, 2018 in Tangier, Morocco to push the conversation on the implications of migration further.

Some of the questions we’ll be asking are:

  • What are the implications of the policies in “destination countries” that are reducing new immigration?
  • Will these policies impact the factors that are driving people flows?
  • Why are governments—in spite of soaring rhetoric at the UN and elsewhere—systematically failing to cope with the realities on the ground, one way or the other?
  • What are the implications for countries that think of themselves as transit countries, but increasingly find themselves hosting large immigrant populations?
  • Can the accelerating pace of technological innovation be channeled to improve the lives of migrants and refugees?
  • Are their ways to redefine the roles of NGOs or to incentivize the private sector to explore transforming migrant/refugee camps, from dead ends to something more positive?
