TF9: Migration and Young Societies

TF9: Migration and Young Societies
Description​

The task force will explore macro- and microeconomic policies that address high youth unemployment and help to provide skills and opportunities for young people. It will examine how to create innovative policies and programs to encourage cross-generational engagement.

Economic and demographic factors, and regional conflicts have driven a significant portion of the global population to voluntarily or forcibly migrate. Much of this migration is from developing to developed G20 countries, with migrants and refugees often encountering problems integrating socially and economically.

The task force will discuss policy options that could enable migrants to better integrate socially and economically, including providing access and education opportunities for migrant and refugee children. It will provide evidence-based research on the social, political and economic impacts of migrants. It will also seek​ a greater understanding of migration mechanisms and aims to learn from success stories. ​
