On 28 January 2021, the Prague Process organises its 2nd Policy Talk ‘Migration Outlook for 2021: From COVID-19 to the EU’s Pact on Migration and Asylum’ with Mr Jean-Louis De Brouwer, Director of the European Affairs Program, Egmont Institute, and Mr Ralph Genetzke, Director, Head of Brussels Mission, ICMPD. The talk will be moderated by Mr Martijn Pluim, Director, Migration Dialogues and Cooperation at ICMPD.

The distinguished panellists will discuss the key migration policies to watch in 2021, focusing on the EU and its neighbourhood. Building on the main lessons from 2020, they will look into the various implications of COVID-19 on migration and mobility, trying to sketch out the ‘new normal’ following an eventual recovery from the ongoing health emergency. The internal and external dimensions of the EU Pact on Migration and Asylum shall be assessed from an international cooperation perspective. The conversation shall also shed light on the megatrends of climate change and digitalisation.
