Programme Description

This executive training course aims at developing and strengthening migration management skills and it provides a unique opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of migration both in its theoretical subtleties and as a very practical subject. This course provides officers and practitioners working in the field of migration with a holistic approach, looking at the issue of migration management from different perspectives and across different key themes in order to share knowledge and upgrade key expertise.

Throughout the training, the different stages of migration management will be explored including managing evidence, examining decision making processes, and implementation. The training combines insights from migration theory and empirical research, with knowledge about challenges and opportunities arising from political processes, and practical perspectives that occur at the operational level. Furthermore, it will teach participants how to develop and apply migration management approaches from the level of policy design to implementation, considering operational constraints and opportunities. At the end of the training, participants will have developed a sophisticated understanding of the complexities, challenges, and trade-offs of migration management.
