Regional organizations vary in highly significant ways in relation to both the institutional form that they take and the provisions that they have for migration from outside the region and mobility within it. Even if the EU is viewed as a paradigmatic case of an intra-regional free movement, this Executive Training will show how why and with what effects other regions have also developed policies and legal frameworks to grant different sets of rights and obligations for intra and extra-regional migrants. These schemes are the result of complex constellations of power, interests and ideas at multiple levels reflecting the multidimensional complexities of transnational governance. Regional governance systems are shaped by and at the same time shape their environment while also playing a powerful role in defining the priorities
on the global migration agenda.

Topics covered

The Executive Training Seminar (ETS) will look closely at how laws and policies have developed to
promote greater mobility within regions and govern migration from outside the region, as well as at the
significant differences that there are between regions in developing and implementing such schemes for migration and mobility.
The goal of this ETS is to explore the policies, politics, ideas and practices that shape the varied experiences
of regional governance of migration and mobility in Southeast Asia, East and West Africa and South
America.

Learning outcomes

Participants will:
- develop enhanced understanding of the dynamics of regional migration governance;
- expand participants’ ability to explore key migration issues by case-based analysis;
- adopt a broad and global perspective into the challenges of the transnational governance of migration and mobility;
- interact with fellow participants and colleagues, through peer teaching and peer learning dynamics.

Methodology

This policy-oriented ETS will adopt an innovative, comparative perspective combining high-level academic insight with the views and experiences of experienced policy practitioners. This will enable participants to hone their knowledge and upgrade their skills in understanding the specific features of regional governance of migration and mobility in diverse settings, while also developing an enhanced understanding of key comparative themes that link regions.

Fees: 1,300 € (for applications received by 31st January a further 10% discount will be applied)

A discount of 25% will be applied to the charges for international European and national civil servants, as well as to members of the NGOs.

The fees cover course materials, as well as coffee and lunch breaks and a networking dinner. Travel and hotel costs are not included in the fees.

Limited fee-waivers and scholarships - from applicants from developing countries -, will be available on needs basis.

Deadline for applications: 28th February 2019.

All successful applicants will be notified by mid- March.
