European Migration Network To Hold EU Conference

By Fernand Gagnier, for ExpatBriefing.com
18 March, 2015


The Annual Conference of the European Migration Network, titled "Attracting and Retaining Talent in Europe," will take place on March 19 and 20, 2015, in Riga.

The conference is to highlight one of the priorities set by the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, in the context of migration. The European Union hopes to revamp its legal migration policies to make Europe one of the most popular destinations for migrants, while addressing the demographic challenges that Europe is likely to face in the future. At the same time, the event will also feature the release of the preliminary findings of the European Migration Network's study "Admitting third-country nationals for business purposes."

The conference will be divided into five panel discussions, on global challenges and competition over talent; the European Union's readiness to attract talented migrants in competition with other countries; the European Union and national policies to attract talent; the role of a welcoming culture in retaining talent; and the perspective of migrants and their countries of origin. It will be attended by migration experts from the member states, representatives from European Union institutions, and researchers, scientists, and experts from New Zealand, Canada, and India.
