This roundtable discussion on migrations within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) will address the fact that the vast majority of Middle East migrations, including the current refugee crisis, take place within the region, with most displaced peoples seeking refuge in camps at the borderlands. Moreover, not all migration within the MENA consists of refugee movements, but also labor migrations. Featuring regional experts, this panel discussion will provide background and context on major currents in Middle East migrations from historical, demographic, anthropological, and practitioner perspectives.
