Workshop - Migration and mobility

Workshop - Migration and mobility

12 october
16.30 to 18.00
Venue: 
S4

Description

Cities and metropolitan areas are the main locus of integration and should play a relevant role in the migration governance, as they implement local policies to insure the social cohesion of their territory. Furthermore, the increasing urbanization of migration flows in the recent years implies new challenges for the strategic planning at urban areas level. Nevertheless, this issue could be tackled through innovative, inclusive and participative approach in order to turn migration into an opportunity for social and economic development at local level. At this regards, the workshop on Migration and Mobility will allow Local Authorities to share their specific experience and to generate a common reflection on our role as local governments in this field and also to take advantage of experiences and innovations of each other as a source of learning.
