Global Migration Initiative 2016 Simulation

From Migration Crisis to Migration Governance

6-8 May 2016

LSE Institute of Global Affairs

The ALUM-Global Migration Initiative 2016 Simulation is the first academic simulation of a High Level Panel of Experts on Global Migration where undergraduate and graduate students take on the role of Representatives of Governments/Agencies involved in migration-related activities and debate issues on the current global agenda for migration. The conference is organised by the Institute of Global Affairs at the London School of Economics and Political Science and will see the participation of 16 delegations from a pan-European group of partner universities:

  • Bocconi University, Italy
  • University of Bologna, Italy
  • Central European University (CEU), Hungary
  • Hertie School of Governance, Germany
  • London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
  • University of Mannheim, Germany
  • Sciences Po, France

The conference will last 2.5 days and will be made up of a series of mini-lectures from prominent migration scholars, interventions from key policymakers and two consecutive round tables where students will represent delegations of countries/agencies different from their own, and will be called to debate issues on the global migration agenda.

The main outcome of the simulation will be a set of innovative, creative, self-sustaining agreed solutions to the standing issues that the ALUM Global Migration Initiative is addressing. These solutions will be collected into two final documents.
