GEF hosted, with the support of Green Economics Institute, a debate around migration and how to challenge the current dominating narrative around it.
The debate provided a temporal and spatial tour of the facts around migration beyond the current primarily negative narrative.
Although migration is a human phenomenon and has always taken place, the global crises, such as the Syrian civil war, and migratory movements over the last decades have led to a revitalisation of the Nation State and to the return of borders.
The event aimed to explore historical examples and lessons of integration to highlight a way forward by proposing a constructive way to deal with migratory movements. By hearing the stories of migrants, the benefits for society were made clear. The event is a part of GEF’s transnational project in 2017, which wants to contribute to the development of a New Narrative on Migration for Europe.
