2016 Europaeum Day on Migration crisis set for Geneva

The Europaeum is once again mounting a special Europaeum Day initiative focussing a series of events to be hosted with the Graduate Institute in Geneva, on European migration and mobility, amidst the fall out from the UK vote to exit the European Union.

The plan for the Europaeum’s European Migration Day is to invite a select group of past and current Europaeum alumni to come to Geneva on October 20th for a day of debates and discussion, including a ‘fireside chat’ with leading European figures, and a model European Parliament-style debate on the theme including reforms to free movement rules, dealing with asylum seekers from north Africa, the impact of the Brexit vote, and how to build Europe-wide cooperation on migration issues.

The high-level panel exploring the politics behind the migration crisis in Europe will include former European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, former Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg, and we hope the Economist and The Observer newspaper columnist, Will Hutton. Please contact the office if you wish to be considered for participation.
