International Conference „Migration and Integration in Europe and Russia: New Challenges and Opportunities“

November 16-18, 2012

St. Petersburg

Working language: English

The Conference will reflect new challenges and opportunities migratory systems are facing in the contemporary world both in Russia and European countries. Movement and mobility are important to the functioning of contemporary societies. Changing infrastructure such as new border crossing facilities, accessibility of visa services, new and accessible transport connections provides incentive for making borders more transparent for travellers. As a result, people discover their neighbouring or even distant countries as a place for life, work, study or leisure which leads to diversification of cross border mobility and types or categories of migration. On the other hand, intensive migrations produce new challenges for the nation states stimulating debates and policies of integration of migrants. The Conference provides an international and cross-disciplinary space to explore these issues. 

In addition, on the first day of the Conference you can visit EU Info-Day and political and civil society round tables. Detailed information find below.
