DYNAMIG policy workshops

DYNAMIG is a three-year project that aims to create a more thorough understanding of how people make decisions on whether or not to migrate and on how they migrate. Focusing on Africa and Europe, we will analyse to what extent migration policies – or policies that impact migration – take into account the factors that shape migration decisions, and look at how effective these policies are in influencing decisions and behaviour.

The third workshop will take place on 30 November 2023. On 8 June 2023we organised the first two thematic policy workshops in Brussels. 

The thematic workshops will be by invitation only and take place under Chatham House rules.

These workshops aim to create room for open and frank discussions in a small setting between EU policymakers, migration experts and DYNAMIG researchers. Together we will discuss research plans, policy priorities and strategies on migration decision-making and the interaction between policies and factors influencing migration decisions. 

These workshops are of key importance to ensure that our work takes into account – and builds on – the knowledge and priorities of policymakers, increasing its quality, usefulness, relevance and impact.

The workshops aim to: 

  • incorporate input and feedback into DYNAMIG research and findings;
  • ensure a better understanding of the exact ways in which EU policies are meant to affect migration and what the priorities of EU policymakers are; 
  • improve our understanding of the mechanisms through which policies can influence migration decisions; and 
  • increase the quality and relevance of our research from the outset.    

We will gather EU policymakers and experts for each of the workshops to exchange with the DYNAMIG team.
