The first and main presentation was held by Professors Alexander Betts and Paul Collier from the University of Oxford, who presented their proposal of a „framework for sustainable migration“. According to the academics, sustainable migration policies must satisfy three simple conditions: meet our basic ethical obligations, have broad democratic support, and not lure people into decisions they will come to regret. Their framework purports to constitute an alternative vision to the way migration policies are shaped nowadays.
