Stakeholder Brief #2 | Tackling the migration and refugee challenge

The WG2 COST Research Workshop “Tackling the migration and refugee challenge”, organized in the framework of the COST Action Empower-SE, succeeded in creating a fruitful discussion forum among over 40 researchers from 15 diverse EU countries, who are studying the migration phenomenon from different disciplinary angles. During the two-day workshop, economists, sociologists, anthropologists, geographers and political scientists shared the findings of their ongoing research and contributed to shedding light on both the limitations and the challenges faced by current research in a field that has important policy implications.

Presentations drew on both empirical and theoretical work, research actions implemented in the frame of large EU projects and exploratory case studies. Nevertheless, attention was also paid to storylines of welcome initiatives reported by the same protagonists who attended the stakeholder meeting the last day.
