April 25, 2018, Wednesday
09:00 – 09:30 Registration of Participants
09:30 – 10:30 Welcome remarks
10:30 – 12:30 Immigration and Current Trends Throughout the World and in Turkey
People who cross borders for the purpose of work or who escape threats
to their lives may encounter many challenges in destination countries,
largely due to a lack of information on living and working conditions.
Many of them may face discrimination and social exclusion. Being in
employment does not guarantee access to basic rights as found in labour
and social security laws of the host country. Further, week social
harmonization may create many problems for host communities. This
introductory part will give a general introduction on migration trends
and challenges with regard to social security faced by migrants around
the world and in Turkey.
12: 30 -13:30 Lunch
13: 30- 15: 00 Session I: Role of Social Security and Social Protection for Integration
Equality of treatment and non-discrimination, maintenance of acquired
rights, maintenance of rights in the course of acquisition and
transportability of benefits are among basic key social security
principles. The discussion will focus on the role of social security and
social protection for the integration of migrants and the objective will be
to share knowledge and experiences.
15: 00- 15: 15 Coffee Break
15:30 – 16:30 Continuation of Session I and end of the Session
April 26, 2018, Thursday
09:30 -11:00 Session II: Effects of Immigration on the Labour Market and Social
Security System from the Perspective of Host Countries
Migration is a growing phenomenon that has important development
implications for both sending and receiving countries and if well
managed, migrants can greatly contribute to the development of both
sending and receiving countries. However, to achieve this, challenges in
the integration of migrants have to be addressed and overcome.
Challenges may include job competition between migrant and national
workers, migrants’ adaptation to the labour market and fiscal costs
associated with the provision of social services to migrants. This session
will focus on the relationship between migration and the labour market
as well as the provision of social security. Case studies and academic
studies will be discussed.
11:00-11: 15 Coffee Break
11:30 -12:30 Continuation of Session II
12:30 -13:30 Lunch
13:30 -15:00 Session III: Good Practices in Social Security for Migrant Workers
Migrants require special social security arrangements so that the risks
they may face due to their situation are adequately addressed. As
migrants move between labour markets, they may be confronted to
problems due to differences in labour laws and social security systems.
The objective of this session will be to share knowledge on good practices
on social security coverage of migrant workers.
