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.
