How much does the support for migrant integration cost? In turn, how much does the lack of support costs? How much do Poland spend on social assistance to foreigners? What are the benefits of migrant businesses? Do migrants and refugees take locals' jobs? In an attempt to answer does questions, the Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) is inviting migration stakeholders, including integration practitioners, to participate in a debate on the economic cost of migration. 

The debate is organised as part of the project "Questions about Europe" with the support of the European Parliament and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation. The event is taking place on 14 February 2018 at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Poland. Simultaneous translation (Polish-English) will be provided during the event. 

Registration is possible until 12 February.
