A Conference concerning issues related to migration in Europe was held on the 31st of July in Oxford. The event was organised by the Green European Foundation, with the support of The Green Economics Institute.

This conference is a part of our transnational Refugees and Migration Policies project. It aimed to provide a space for debate about the implications of the Refugee and Asylum Policies crisis in Europe, and to foster Green alternatives in terms of solutions and best practices of integration. Furthermore, this was an opportunity to bring forward the cases of Green activism with successful outcomes in enabling integration in the European context.

The programme of the conference included lessons of contemporary integration models from Green professionals in the field, research inputs from relevant academics and debates on practical proposals for Green policies towards migration.
