Beyond Irregularity: Finding effective policy solutions to irregular migration through transnational cooperation

The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR), in collaboration with its Beyond Irregularity project partners, namely the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM), the Council for the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME), the Development Research and Projects Centre (DRPC), the Sussex Centre for Migration Research and the Eaves Housing for Women, will hold a high level conference hosted by the European Commission, entitled:

Beyond Irregularity: Finding effective policy solutions to irregular migration through transnational cooperation

On Friday 14 June 2013 at the Albert Borschette Conference Centre

rue Froissart 36, 1049 Brussels, Belgium

9am - 5pm

Migrants who are caught in situations of irregular border crossing, residence or work face continued uncertainty and are typically vulnerable to exploitation. Responding to situations of irregularity in ways that address the human rights concerns of migrants but are also acceptable to policy makers and the public at large remains a significant challenge that has only rarely been adequately addressed.

The Conference will bring together speakers and participants from Europe, Morocco and sub-Saharan Africa to discuss the final results of the “Beyond Irregularity” Project. Intended for public officials, policy makers, civil society advocates and front-line organisations, this conference will provide an opportunity to explore the transnational context of irregularity and to identify practical and sustainable solutions that fostercooperation between European and non-European governments.

The Conference will also discuss ways to take forward and monitor the implementation of some of the recommendations of the project and present all project publications, including two guides for civil society organizations advocating for undocumented migrants rights realized by PICUM.
