The workshop will focus on migration policymaking that effectively reconciles the conditions set by economic cycles, on the one hand, and demographic realities, on the other hand. Using the lessons learned from the most recent global economic crisis, the purpose of the workshop is to better understand the impacts of economic fluctuations on migration in relation to larger demographic parameters. Through a series of presentations and discussions, participants will evaluate the effectiveness of various migration policy measures taken in response to the downturn and place them in the context of broader population and labour market trends, in developed and developing, origin and destination countries. Attempts will be made to identify gaps and limitations in comprehensively addressing the migration challenges often found in the wake of a recession. In line with the overarching theme of IDM 2011, the workshop will pay particular attention to the capacity requirements in this area of migration policy.
