The lecture deals with the interlinkages between demographic change and labour migration policies in the Eastern & South-Eastern Europe Region as well as in Slovakia. It specifies demographic projections for the region and who is and will be impacted the most. The lecture then focuses on countries’ reaction to the situation, outlines risks of overly restrictive and overly open migration policies, and summarizes country’s optimal policy response.
This lecture was part of the 8th EMN Educational Seminar on Migration entitled „Migration in a Multilateral world“. The Seminar is organised by the International Organization for Migration Slovakia as the coordinator of the Slovak EMN National Contact Point.
