This event will contribute to UNESCO's Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme's initiative on the background causes, processes and social implications of migration, and to inclusive decision-making on migration.

It is organized in the context of the 4th World Social Science Forum which will be dedicated to the theme of “Security and Equality for Sustainable Futures” (Fukuoka, Japan, from 25 to 28 September 2018). The Forum is organized by the International Science Council (ISC), under the patronage of UNESCO.

Immigration is currently one of the key policy issues and at the center of debate. Migration is a source of many misconceptions and controversies with environmental, social, cultural, political and economic implications.

Sustainable Development Goal 10, target 7, reads “Facilitate orderly, safe, and responsible migration and mobility of people, including through implementation of planned and well-managed migration policies”.

The MOST Programme is giving a high importance to contribute to especially SDG 16 on “Promote peaceful and inclusive societies” and with a particular focus on inter alia the topic of migration through a MOST iniative on the background causes, processes and social implications of migration. It aims at enhancing understanding of the social, cultural, economic and political context in which movements of people take place and to contribute to a more favorable context for the inclusion of migrants in host societies and the implementation of better-informed policies.

This session will provide presentations by renowned researchers followed by discussion. It will inform the next session of the MOST Intergovernmental Council and other migration events and activities carried out by the MOST Programme.
