Immigration and the Social Welfare State: Implications for Policy-Making
From 21 settembre to 22 settembre 2009

This seminar will look into the social effects of migration from a comparative approach. After examining migratory patterns and causes, the seminar will analyse States’ incentives for attracting migrant workers and address key aspects of viable European policies for social inclusion and protection. In view of the demographic developments, the implications of international migration for the national social systems will be assessed. Participants will be offered practical guidance regarding the portability of social security benefits for migrants internationally, as well as methods to quantify and address the negative consequences of migration for State institutions and social systems.

Target group
The seminar is aimed at social security authorities and public officials from national, regional and local authorities of the EU Member States involved in the planning and implementation of migration and social policies. It should also be of interest to social services and migrant organisations, the private sector, and practitioners.

The seminar will be interactive and offer a combination of presentations and lectures, whilst allowing for the exchange of good practices and experiences.
