In the Spotlight: Vienna Migration Conference 2017 

The Vienna Migration Conference 2017 takes place 23-24 October in the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna. This year's theme is "Migration Partnerships - Frameworks for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration", a continuation of last year's discussions, which identified "conflict, demography, economic disparities, development and transition as the main drivers of migration in today’s international context". This conclusion opposed the long-held belief that poverty is the primary driver of migration.
