Representatives of government, business, and academia, gathered at the Peace Palace in The Hague, The Netherlands, for the 11th meeting of The Club of The Hague, June 4th, 2013. The Club of The Hague, the international Advisory Council to the Board of The Hague Process on Refugees and Migration (THP), meet annually.
The meeting provided a framework for future partnerships between municipal governments and businesses in cities around the world.
Deconstruction of the greater challenges of migration and development into smaller – and addressable – issues and concerns was the task of the day.
Businesses and cities are the drivers for practical implementation of positive change in migration. Identifying the best practices of business and cities already happening is key to forming a pragmatic approach, and further dialogue, leading to ways to successfully address migration and refugee issues.
