Transatlantic Discourse on Integration: "The Migration-Security Nexus in the light of the German EU-Presidency", March, 19, 2007

This workshop within the series "Transatlantic Discourse" has been organised by the efms in cooperation with the Heinrich Böll Foundation. The workshop aimed at discussing the latest security policies and measures in the U. S. and Europe with regard to their impact on immigration and integration of migrants. In this context, the human rights perspective has been highlighted as well as the situation of Muslims in the U.S. and Germany in the post-9/11 era. The future of migration-security issues has been debated in the light of the EU working programme under the German EU-presidency. The workshop continued a discussion which started in earlier conferences and aims at adding policy orientated aspects:

  • "Immigration and Security - European Challenges and International Perspectives" (March 2006, Heinrich Böll Foundation)
  • "Belliago Dialogue on Migration" (June/July 2006, German Marshall Fund of the United States)
