Migration Week 2016

Date/Time: 24/10/2016 - 28/10/2016  All Day

Location: Bergen Resource Centre for International Development

Background

Join CMI, IMER, SKOK and the Faculty of Law at the University of Bergen, in cooperation with Bergen Resource Centre and the Norwegian Centre for Humanitarian Studies, for Migration Week 2016.

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

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