— Young European Leadership (YEL) in collaboration with Debating Europe have come together to organise a discussion forum on the topic of migration. The aim of the event is to bring together stakeholders to discuss on the benefits and challenges of migration and, more specifically, integration of refugees in the European society.
— Europe has been a dream destination for many individuals and families in search of a better life because of its democracy, stability and opportunities. The increased inflow of migrants and refugees has sparked new discussions concerning regulations pertaining to migration policies, integration and measures to be taken in the countries of origin. The Migration Debate addresses these questions from a European perspective.
