The European Economic and Social Committee hosted the 2nd edition of the European Migration Forum (6-7 April) organised with the European Commission. The Forum has replaced the Integration Forum that was established by the Commission under the European Migration Agenda in 2009 to discuss key topics that would benefit from a discussion with civil society. The Forum looked into the specific challenges faced by low and medium-skilled migrants, undeclared work and exploitation, access to labour market, and the role of the local level and civil society in the integration process (background document here).
Participants gathered concrete policy outputs through participatory and interactive workshops. These conclusions will feed into the European Commission’s forthcoming initiatives such as the “EU Action Plan on the integration of third-country nationals”.
