Migration represents both an opportunity and a challenge. While well-managed migration may foster progress and welfare in both source and host countries, its mismanagement may put social cohesion, security and sovereignty at risk.

Migration is evolving rapidly, and so knowledge needs to be constantly updated and shared with policymakers. Due to it being a global phenomenon, its study requires innovative cooperation between scholars around the world.
