The Task Force on Force Migration aims at stimulating debate and providing innovative, dispassionate and evidence-based policy options to the G20 (and beyond) on how to empower forced migrants. The focus will be on policy interventions to ensure that the basic needs of forced migrants are met, including by encouraging economic self-reliance through legal

work and access to public services, focusing on host countries outside the EU. Beyond policy interventions in countries of first asylum, the Task Force on Forced Migration will also consider supporting measures at the international level.

The Task Force “Forced Migration” is co-chaired by:
