The 9th Prague Process webinar ‘From refugee crises to labour migration and back? Lessons for migration policies in the Western Balkans’ with Prof. Anna Krasteva, New Bulgarian University, took place on 17 December 2020.
The webinar dived into the migration realities of the Western Balkan region torn between the urgency of refugee management and the legacy of forced migration on the one side, and the need to prioritize labour migration as a tool for national and regional development on the other side. Prof. Krasteva explained how and whether a labour migration policy could change the existing profile of the WB region, as well as provided related policy recommendations inspired by the EU’s New Pact on Migration and Asylum.
The webinar recording is available in two formats: the first contains the presentation of Prof. Krasveta only while the second one represents the full-length video recording of the webinar, entailing also the Q&A session.
