    Migration, Security and European Citizens

    Migration is one of the three main security concerns of European citizens, besides terrorism and extremism. Across Europe, populist politicians are polarizing societies and spreading fear among citizens. Tensions between the EU countries are rising.

    At the European Table in Neuville-Bosc, we want to analyze how the EU can make its citizens feel more secure and what role national governments and civil societies can play in this process. Together with leaders from business, politics, and civil society, we will explore migration not as a security threat but as an opportunity for economic and cultural prosperity. Finally, we want to encourage participants to take concrete initiatives to support this process.
