ACA European Policy Seminar | Mobility-migration nexus: policies, practices, discourses & evidence

The upcoming European Policy Seminar (EPS) of the Academic Cooperation Association (ACA) will address the complex area of mobility-migration interplays and overlaps in theory and practice, the different legal and economic frameworks that affect them both at EU and national level, the links and gaps between policy, practice and research as well as the desired measures to increase the synergies between them. This seminar aims to inform policymakers and practitioners alike of ongoing and relevant research, to create space for the policy-practice-research 'trialogue', to point to effective practices as an example and inspiration to national-level actions and university initiatives. Our speakers represent EU and national policymakers, researchers from across Europe, higher education institutions and European associations.

What will participants get out of the seminar?

  • A critical overview of mobility trends and patterns, insights into European and global highly skilled migration
  • The latest developments concerning the national implementation of the 2016 Directive on the conditions of entry and residence of third-country nationals for the purposes of research, studies and training, and other measures for talent attraction and retention

  • The latest research on (less desired) outcomes of mobility and the position of highly skilled immigrants on the labour market
  • Updates and analysis on national and EU-level public diplomacy initiatives through student recruitment and alumni engagement
