Webinar Series "Zooming in on Migration and Asylum"

H2020 Webinar Series



  • Background A number of EU-funded Horizon 2020 research and innovation projects focus on migration and asylum, issues which remain at the top of the agenda for European policymakers and publics alike. In this new webinar series, we join forces to expand our collective knowledge base on some of today’s most pressing dynamics, including protracted displacement, the notion of crisis in the field of migration and asylum, internal displacement, refugee-driven solutions, and alternatives to current migration governance. The series aims to facilitate evidence-based discussions and action at multiple levels.

    TRAFIG, ADMIGOV, MAGYC, and MIGNEX are co-organizing the webinar series. We invite other H2020 projects in the field of migration and displacement research to contribute as well. Please contact us, if you wish to provide insights from your project.

    The Format With its launch back-to-back with the World Refugee Day 2020, this webinar series draws upon the research teams involved in different H2020 projects and their respective findings. The webinars will be held once a month starting in June 2020, with the lead rotating between partners. Each 90min-webinar will be conducted via the webinar platform Zoom. The audience can pose questions via the Q&A format.
