Well-managed migration is an important tool to support sustainable development of Slovakia and Europe.
We believe that Slovakia needs well-managed migration and to this end, we develop activities focused on research, policy-making and practical interventions and provide support to public institutions, receiving communities as well as individual migrants.
MIGRATION AS AN OPPORTUNITY
The demographic outlook of Slovakia is one of the worst in the EU. According to UN and Eurostat forecasts, the number of inhabitants in our country may fall below four million during this century and Slovakia will also have one of the oldest European populations.
Tools to mitigate this situation are limited and will certainly need to include measures to support return of expatriates and immigration.
It is therefore our responsibility to start a responsible discussion about migration, whether of Slovak nationals or of foreigners, focussing on opportunities and not only on threats as it has until now.
