Intra-EU Migration and Migrant Integration

This conference explores two of the major issues in EU migration today: intra-EU migration and migrant integration. There are over 50 million migrants in the EU-28 member states, including a third who moved from one EU member state to another. Far more Central Europeans than expected migrated west after 2004, and there is debate in 2014 about how many Bulgarians and Romanians may migrate to other EU countries and seek welfare. Meanwhile, Germany and other EU countries with stronger economies that attract migrants are developing a “welcome culture” to accompany “integration contracts” and speed the integration of immigrants.
