The New Europe: Migrations, Integration and Security The East Forum 2016 will examine the theme of “The New Europe: migrations, integration and security”. The focus will be on the migrant crisis, the main challenge facing the Old Continent today and one that involves further challenges: the social integration of new arrivals and the question of guaranteeing security across the European territory, especially in light of the threat of Islamic terrorism.
As it was the case for the sovereign debt crisis and the European Monetary Union, what we are facing today with the migrant and refugees crisis is the consequence of the failure to complete the European construction: shared internal borders make no sense without shared external borders. Migration issues and, more in general, border issues have to be considered as European – and not national – issues. It is time to release the brake of national sovereignty.
If integration into labour markets and local communities works, migration can be a great opportunity. Therefore, integration policies – such as language training, professional education and initiatives to adapt skills to business demands – are key to promote a virtuous circle: more migrants finding jobs would mean less public expenditure and more people paying taxes and social security contributions.
