The structure of the course will be as follows:
• Plenary sessions: High-level experts from different backgrounds and representing different organisations will be invited to join morning discussions on high-priority, cross-cutting and emerging themes in the field of migration and development. This will offer a useful contextual backdrop to the more detailed discussions in the interactive sessions
The topics that will be covered during plenary sessions are (among others):
– Emergence, development and current trends of the migration and development discourse
– Coherence/Incoherence between migration and development policies
– Migration in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and related global debates
– Why should we mainstream migration into policy planning?
– Who are the actors to be involved?
– Mainstreaming migration into development planning
• Interactive sessions: Interactive sessions will be held throughout the course where further group work, analysis of projects, mutual support and identification of potential partnerships will allow for a more in-depth approach to the specific issues addressed in the sessions. These sessions will be facilitated around peer-to-peer learning, encouraging participants to develop, share and challenge ideas among themselves.
