The conference will be held on February 9th-10th, 2023, in Tbilisi, under the aegis of the European Integration Research Center, operating at Georgian National University SEU. This conference will also be organized together with the Lazarski University (Poland).

At the beginning of the 21st century, along with the growth of the migration movement, the protection of migrants' rights, the regulation of migration processes by the states, the issues of the state's sovereignty, its security, and, at the same time, internal socio-political conflicts became relevant.

This conference is the best way for local and international researchers and policymakers to discuss together the results of modern academic research and present a wide range of issues related to migration in a more general - European and international perspective.

Both experienced and young scientists, including doctoral students from Georgia and European Union, will participate in the conference.

- Migration and Development.
- Causes of Migration and Responses.
- Migration as a human right and as a social challenge.
