Policy briefing No. 2 "New Migrations and the challenges of integration in Europe, Australia and New Zealand"

by Katharina Naumann

Europe and Australasia are traditional receiving regions of migration and refugees. Countries in both continents have developed diverse policy measures to meet the challenges arising from this and integrate arriving people into their respective societies. Thus, an exchange between the two regions to learn from each other’s experiences can bring about new approaches to this phenomenon. This policy briefing provides a summary of an expert conference that addressed recent developments regarding refugees and temporary migrants, immediate actions to foster integration and long-term strategies.

Policy Briefing No. 1 “Fostering Europe-Asia Cooperation in Addressing Irregular Migration and Refugee Movements”

by Patrick Rüppel

Refugee movements and irregular migration are no new phenomena to Asia and Europe, but have shaped them for decades. Irregular migration patterns in both regions show certain similarities and the causes for leaving the respective home countries are also comparable. The direct linkages between the two regions concerning this challenge are strong. Despite these connections, collaboration has been limited. Thus, it is necessary to foster an exchange between both sides to address these matters jointly.
