Jean Monnet Seminar “Migrations” took place in Tunis, Tunisia on February 22-23, 2016.

Eighty five participants from different countries gathered in Tunis to discuss the vital topic of migration.

Dr. Irina Sikorskaya participated at the event in behalf of Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at DSUM.

The Seminar aimed to emphasize again the urgent issues of the current situation with migration flows in Europe in general and with Syrian refugees in particular. The questions of the origin of migration, its impact on the social, political and economic situation of the EU countries were on the agenda.

The more active connections of academia and policy makers in solving the migration problems were accented by most of the speakers and presenters.
