The United Nations University Institute on Globalization, Culture and Mobility (UNU-GCM) was pleased to host the first conference of the UNU Migration Network on 28 January 2016. The theme of “International Migration and Current Challenges: Transforming the Debate on Human Mobility” is a crucial contemporary topic, connected to key concerns of our world, including, among others, human and international security, sustainable development and gender issues. As a consequence, questions arising in the field of international migration provoke discussions among a variety of experts, stakeholders and citizens on how to better deal with human mobility. This conference aimed to provide the audience with an interdisciplinary and multifaceted analysis of these dynamics through research presentations from various members of the Network.
