Migration and International Political Economy: determinants and causes of migration from the MENA region

Description of the event:

The Observatory on the EU-MENA Relations (OEMR) aims to host an online webinar to explore the implications and determinants of migration from the MENA through an International Political Economy (IPE) perspective. The objective of this session is to launch a first series of webinars on cross-cutting regional issues with experts, academics and policy officers called EU-MENA Relations: Between Challenging Realities and Promising Opportunities.

The main objective of this webinar is to provide a non-mainstream perspective on a highly debated issue such as migration. The session could serve as an informative, educational seminar which can give and suggest a new point of view on the phenomenon of transregional migration defining it as a structural issue. Migration is therefore linked to the processes of globalisation, technological transformation and relocation of production.
