(Part 2) Youth and migration: Engaging youth as key partner in migration governance - International Dialogue on Migration 2019
28 Feb 2019 -  Today, there are more young people in the world than ever, 1.8 billion, the largest generation in history. Of the 258 million international migrants, approximately 11 percent of them were below 24 years of age in 2017. The propensity to migrate tends to be highest among young people. Young people have also a key role in policy discussions, rising up worldwide for their rights and better opportunities and demanding a seat at the table in decision-making processes.
The 2019 series of the International Dialogue on Migration discussions will foster exchanges on all areas relevant to youth and migration, including, but not limited to the following:
Global strategies and partnerships on youth on the move
Involvement of young people, especially youth migrants, in migration policy and decision-making processes at global, national and local level
Adaptation and resilience among youth migrants
Youth as agents of integration and social cohesion
Youth as actors of development: promoting their contribution to empowering communities in countries of origin and destination
Youth migration in the context of the new era of technology.
