Migrants and refugees have become a pressing topic not only for journalists but for politicians, police, and the general public. The number of international migrants reached 244 million in 2015, up a striking 41% since 2000, according to UN data. That's enough people to make up the fifth most populous country on Earth. 

Come network with some of the leading journalists in the field. Share sources and ideas. This is an open networking session, designed to foster collaboration andn brainstorming.
