Immigration Futures

An international forum

Monash Centre in Prato, Italy
18-19 May 2006

The international forum, Immigration Futures, will examine future migration flows, migration patterns (including circular, temporary and permanent migration) and the impact of out-migration on sending countries.

As the competition for skilled migration grows and the world's population becomes increasingly mobile, these are issues of growing importance and interest.

Countries are looking for policies to attract and retain the immigrants they need to meet labour demands and demographic realities, as well as the research to support their decisions.

Immigration Futures will bring together some of the top academics, policy-makers and internationally-renowned migration thinkers to discuss and debate these issues.
