The interconnected and fast-moving geopolitical and technological challenges facing organiza­tions and workers around the globe call for a concerted effort – but instead meet with institutional silos in thinking and decision-making. The impact of these divides is even more profound in times of heightened and multifaceted uncertainty.   

Through panels and roundtable discussions, we will explore practical tools to build trust, shift mindsets and shape collaborative efforts, with a focus on two crucial unknowns at the forefront of domestic and international discourse: Migration and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Seemingly disparate uncertainties involved in the global movement of people and the fundamental shifts in human work and productivity caused by new technologies may act together to create more hardship and inequality. Join us for a day of critical reflections and proactive solutions towards shaping a future where technology empowers and migration enriches the world of work.




9:30 - 10:30 CEST | Welcome Breakfast

10:30 - 11:15 CEST | Governing the Unknown: When Complexity Meets Silos

Our opening panel will tackle the challenge of creating trust for collaborative policy-building across multiple unknowns. Could more collaborative methods inform stronger policy frameworks to steer geopolitical, demographic and technological impacts on the future of work?

11:15 - 11:30 CEST | Break

14:00 - 15:00 CEST | Carving New Collaborations

15:30 - 17:00 CEST | Integrating Across Multiple Unknowns

Participants are invited to join forces to identify connections between the systems and policy solutions for migration and AI. Roundtables will close with reflections on how new mindsets, tools and connections could influence how we work together to envision and shape the future of work.

17:00 - 17:30 CEST | Break

17:30 - 19:00 CEST | The Future of Working Together

Our closing panel will bring together conveners of prominent multilateral initiatives and events geared towards bridging silos, building trust, and broadening cooperation.
