integration, and their effect on nation states. First we will examine the
various reasons for migration. What are the differences and similarities
between Europe and East Asia? What impact does migration have on nation
states? What factors play a significant role in the creation of current

Experts in science, politics, and civil society will introduce their

will ask European parliamentarians how migration will likely reshape the
