The challenge of migration in the European Union
31 January 2018 - 18:00
Lecture in English by Caterina Francesca Guidi
Migration is playing a central role in shaping the EU. European integration and the freedom of movement it brings have contributed to population changes within European societies. The recent increase in migration has complicated these dynamics. EU member states have struggled to adopt new policies in order to manage migration flows and to combat rising xenophobia and racism. Caterina Guidi will analyse the impact of migrants on European societies and how the EU intends to face this challenge politically and culturally. Dr Guidi is a Research Associate at the European University Institute.
