The objective of the Migration Leaders Policy Seminar was to develop a full understanding of the challenges and opportunities that migration presents. The modules aimed at demonstrating how different aspects of the migration portfolio fit together, and how changes to one part can impact the functioning of the whole. The goal was for participants to use this to develop and judge the most effective policy options for their countries.

This three-day course was designed for departmental heads responsible for migration policy and operations, policy directors, and senior analysts within government agencies. The invitation-only program was moderated by the best thinkers on both sides of the Atlantic, who offered insights into how global structural changes are likely to affect migration flows, and explore what tools policymakers have at their disposal to manage these rapidly changing trends. The seminar provided a rare opportunity to explore and discuss these issues in a confidential setting with peers facing similar challenges in their own countries—and with former policymakers with decades of experience.

The interactice approach used participants' own policy priorities (and challenges) as entry points into each discussion.
