Overview

In 2015, more than one million migrants and refugees arrived in the European Union, just one dimension of a wider global humanitarian crisis.

For Europe, manging the flow of arrivals, integrating newcomers and supporting stability and reform in countries of origin represent significant political and social challenges.

At this conference, participants will discuss how European countries are responding to the refugee and migration crisis and the best approaches to these challenges over the medium and long term.

This conference is the second annual Vision Europe Summit, a collaboration of leading think tanks and foundations in Europe.

Attendance at this event is strictly by invitation only.
