DYNAMIG policy workshop

On 30 November, DYNAMIG is organising its 3rd policy workshop between EU policymakers, experts and the DYNAMIG team, titled 'Enhanced opportunities for regular labour migration to the EU: Influencing choices of potential migrants?'

The DYNAMIG team organises workshops to create room for open and frank discussions in a small setting between EU policymakers, migration experts and DYNAMIG researchers. Together we discuss research plans, policy priorities and strategies on migration decision-making and the interaction between policies and factors influencing migration decisions. 

On 8 June 2023, we organised the first two of the thematic policy half-day workshops in Brussels. 

These workshops are of key importance to ensure that our work takes into account – and builds on – the knowledge and priorities of policymakers, increasing its quality, usefulness, relevance and impact.

The workshops aim to: 

  • incorporate input and feedback into DYNAMIG research and findings;
  • ensure a better understanding of the exact ways in which EU policies are meant to affect migration and what the priorities of EU policymakers are; 
  • improve our understanding of the mechanisms through which policies can influence migration decisions; and 
  • increase the quality and relevance of our research from the outset.    

We gather EU policymakers and experts for each of the workshops to exchange with the DYNAMIG team. 


The thematic workshops are by invitation only and take place under Chatham House rules.
