Thursday, July 13, 2017: 4:00 PM-5:30 PM
Palace Ballroom I (Crowne Plaza Brussels - Le Palace)

Chair: Michaella Vanore, Maastricht Graduate School of Governance

Panelists: Khalid Koser, Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund; Lukas Gehrke, International Centre for Migration Policy Development; and Alice Szczepanikova, Foresight and Behavioural Insights Unit, Joint Research Center, European Commission.

Discussant: Ronald Skeldon, UNU-MERIT/MGSoG and University of Sussex

This keynote panel shall question and examine the effectiveness of the migration (including forced migration) policies we see in place around the world today - drawing upon examples from the United Kingdom, China, the United States, and the European Union. Within these contexts, the panelists will interrogate the real versus illusory aims and procedures of migration policies. Moreover, the panelists will discuss what it means for a migration policy to be "successful" and how such success can be defined, measured, and compared across time and place.
