Crossing a new frontier, we announce the III International Scientific and Practical Conference "Migration and Global Challenges of the Third Decade of the XXI Century" to be held at RUDN University in Moscow.

Specialists in the field of migration regulation from the Member States of the European Union and the CIS, as well as from Latin America, Africa and Asia are invited to participate in the event. The Conference participants will meet to discuss one of the most massive phenomenon affecting political, economic and environmental landscapes of countries, regions and continents - migration and its caused transformations.
Expert support is provided to the conference events by the following organizations:

- Institute of CIS countries,

Based on the results of expertise, the following agenda of the international conference in 2020 has been defined:
I. At the plenary session of the Conference there will be held a discussion of acute aspects of migration processes in the new decade, as well as changes in the trajectories of migration flows in 2020-2030.
II. The following issues are on the agenda of Conference sections
· Monitoring migration processes: accounting, information security and digitalization
In this section we invite you to discuss the impact of digital trends on migration records: what can Big Data tell us about transnational migration flows? How can such data be effectively collected and stored without threatening personal data? What are the latest software tools and optimal mechanisms for collecting statistics around the world? What criteria and statistical indicators are the most effective in making decisions?
· Migration factor in megacities and ecosystem management
Cities attract migrants with resources and opportunities for growth. Migrants not only contribute to the prosperity of cities, but also challenge the established urban management practices. What opportunities and constraints do local policies face in promoting migrant integration in cities? How does migration affect the image and ecosystem of a large city? How do the authorities in different cities of the world respond to the challenges?
· Responding to migration challenges: regional models
Migration processes are taking place all over the globe, and regions have faced the risks of migration crises. The round table will bring together representatives of different countries and continents to discuss how their regions and states are coping with migration issues. Participants of the round table will tell how different approaches and solutions to migration challenges are in Africa, Latin America and Asia.
· Socio-economic development in the context of migration processes
Migration has an impact on socio-economic development, bringing both positive and negative aspects. In the framework of the panel discussion, we invite to discuss with experts the effects of migration on labor markets, donor and recipient economies, poverty and social inclusion.
III. At the youth Section of the Conference Bachelor, Master and PhD students, as well as postdocs, whose professional and research interests are related to migration issues are invited to participate. They will have the opportunity to present their vision as future migration managers, experts and scientists, how migration trends will develop in the mid- and long term.
