As part of the Czech Presidency of the Council of the European Union, this EMN conference will discuss labour migration with prominent stakeholders in light of emerging needs, new strategies and tools being developed at the EU level, and their accompanying challenges. Specific topics that will be covered include: labour migration management, cooperation with non-EU countries, assistance and challenges connected with migrant workers already present in the territory of the host country, the attraction of talents, and the changes caused by new technologies and digitalisation. Also, special attention will be paid to the impact of refugees fleeing Ukraine on the EU labour market.
Labour migration is a topic that has been receiving increasing attention at the European level over the last few years. The political discussions are not only related to the challenges associated with labour mobility and the creation of common admission and procedural standards. The issue of cooperation with countries of origin of migrant workers has been increasingly brought under the spotlight. Special focus is put on the topic of enhancing the success of the European Union in the global competition for skilled workers.
The aim of the conference is to bring together a wide group of leading experts in order to exchange information and opinions, share best practices and gain a new perspective on the issues mentioned above.
