European Migration Forum – 5th meeting

Home affairs, Migration and Integration
Date: Wednesday, 03 April 2019 09:00 - Thursday, 04 April 2019 18:00

Venue: EESC, room JDE 62 & Atrium 6

The 5th Forum meeting will take place on 3-4 April 2019 in Brussels.

The topic of the 5th European Migration Forum was chosen following consultations with civil society representatives. Public consultations, both in the form of an event (held on 3 October 2018) and via a written questionnaire, that were open to all organisations interested in the Forum, allowed organisations to give their input on the proposed topics. The contributions received seem to have converged towards the key issue of safe and regular pathways to the EU and global to local governance of migration. In a nutshell, the content of the meeting will therefore focus on safe and regular migration, for both humanitarian and other reasons, including a reflection on how to implement the Global Compacts on Migration and Refugees and on the role that civil society organisations and other local actors can play in this interaction between the international and the local dimension.


As in previous years, the 5th meeting will be conducted using an interactive, participatory approach. The Forum will feature debates held in plenary, but the core of the event will consist of workshops, discussion islands and other opportunities to participate in the debate. This will maximize the opportunity for members of civil society organisations to interact with each other and with policy makers.

While the organisers aim to provide participants with interpretation services in more languages, it is highly recommended that they have a good command of English or French.
