Summary

From 1 to 4 May the fourth Cross-Border Research Conference on “the Dilemma of Migration” was organised at the Border Management Staff College (BMSC). This event served as a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss their most recent findings and experiences related to trends in contemporary migration and the issues of migration that became especially acute in the last decade.

The event brought together 20 researchers and mid- to senior-level officials from border security and management agencies of eleven countries. There were also representatives of academia, regional and international organisations, including the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (FRONTEX), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), George C. Marshall European Centre for Security Studies and the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR).

The discussion covered research findings and practitioner presentations focusing on the definition, classification, types, causes and routes of migration as well as the legal aspects of dealing with migration. The value of such a forum for scholars is in the opportunity to broaden their understanding of the issues, learn about the experience of researchers from other countries as well as finding out more about the best practices in countering cross-border threats, applied by different states.
