Bergen Migration Week 24-28 October

10822-MigrationWeek-1

The world is in a migrant crisis. Millions of people are displaced. People are fleeing war, poverty and oppression in the largest movement of peoples since WWII.

The policing of the EUs outer boundary has broken down. Treaties regulating movement, work and asylum have crumbled.  In response, Europe erects new fences and introduces stricter immigration policies. What is at stake and how can it be solved?

Academics, journalist and filmmakers will meet and discuss migration challenges in panels and roundtables in the Migration week in Bergen 24-28 October.

All events are free, open to the public and represent some of the most exiting scholarship on migration aimed at the general audience.

The event is co-hosted by the International Migration and Ethnic Relations Researh Unit Bergen (IMER), Centre for Women’s and Gender Research (SKOK) and the Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI).
