Valdai Club Conference Hall, Tsvetnoy Boulevard 16/1, Moscow, Russia
List of speakers

On December 19 at 16:00 Moscow Time (GMT+3), the Valdai Club hosted a discussion on migration issues. The discussion was timed to coincide with the International Migrants Day, which is celebrated annually on December 18.

Over the centuries, migrants have made a major contribution to the cultural, social and economic development of host countries. Today, more than 281 million people, almost 3.6% of the world’s population, are involved in the processes of international migration. The international migration has a tremendous impact on demographic dynamics, labour markets and socio-economic processes in both receiving and sending countries.

Russia has recently become the centre of Eurasian migration. The Eurasian migration system has rapidly become one of the four largest in the world, along with those of North America, Western Europe, and Middle East.

Working languages: Russian, English.
