Migration politics and policies in Central Europe



MigrationCentral Europe

With the goal of facilitating agreement on common solutions in the area of migration, GLOBSEC launched a project in March 2016 that provides insights into migration trends and policy and politics dynamics in Central Europe (Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland). By engaging a wide range of actors, the project aims to foster understanding regarding what EU countries can agree on now, where political efforts should be expended, what is feasible to change, and which actors should be engaged with in different national contexts in terms of local debates.

For us, Central Europeans, the migration debate is not only about migrants. It’s also about our place and role in the European Union and our capacity to be part of common solutions to this long-term problem that will shape the future of Europe.
