Integration of migrants in the EU

This event will discuss the integration of migrants in the EU as well as the EU's response to the recent refugee crisis

Date: January 29, 2018, 11:00 am Topic: European Macroeconomics & Governance

A video recording of the event will be available on this page soon.


Since the early 1990s, immigration has been a more important source of population increase in the EU than the natural change due to births and deaths, while in recent years Europe is facing a large inflow of refugees. At the same time, Eurobarometer opinion surveys reveal that immigration tops the list of challenges that EU citizens are most concerned about and therefore effective policies toward immigration are more important now than ever.

The event focused on integration of migrants in the EU and explore the reasons behind the large differences in migration integration effectiveness across the EU member states.

The event, organised by Bruegel in cooperation with DIW Berlin discussed these and related questions and also featured the launch in Berlin of the study authored by Uuriintuya Batsaikhan, Zsolt Darvas and Inês Gonçalves Raposo on the impact and integration of migrants in the European Union.

This event was made possible with the kind support of the MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth.
