Migration and forced displacement feature prominently in national, regional, and global politics and policies. Yet, the debate is often infused with a political and populist narrative that is not founded in evidence. Given this backdrop, the webinar on Human Mobility will seek to have a factual discussion on these emotive issues, grounded in recent research. The panel will also discuss a set of potential policy solutions to both improve the integration of migrants and refugees in labour markets and to promote healthy attitudes towards them to bolster social cohesion.
