Posted by

Thiruvalla in Kerala is getting ready for the inaugural Migration Conclave – 2024, set to unfold from January 18 to 21, 2024.

This landmark event, a crucial segment of the 5th International Congress on Kerala Studies, is organized by the AKG Centre for Research and Studies, Thiruvananthapuram, in collaboration with the V.S. Chandrasekharan Pillai Centre for Research and Studies, Pathanamthitta.

The Migration Conclave aspires to delve into the multifaceted role that the migrant community could play as a catalyst in propelling Kerala towards becoming a Knowledge Economy. Acknowledging the loss of human resources during migration, the conclave emphasizes the invaluable contributions of financial resources, knowledge transfer, technology infusion, skill enhancement, and job creation that migrants bring back to their roots.

The primary focus lies in nurturing a knowledge-based economy vital for skilled labor, fostering innovation, promoting education, and contributing to the progressive development of Kerala’s social structure.

During this extensive three-day event, over 100,000 participants from 75 countries will engage in discussions, presenting more than 600 papers on diverse topics across 10 platforms. The Migration Conclave will tackle a wide array of subjects, aiming to address pertinent issues, provide solutions, contemplate the future of the expatriate community, assess the needs of immigrants in their homeland, and deliberate on matters that can benefit all sectors.

The conclave is uniquely structured to be both online and face-to-face, enabling participation from more than three lakh expatriates across 75 countries. It will encompass discussions on 16 key issues related to the diaspora, with a significant emphasis on the role of the diaspora in promoting the knowledge-based economy, the need for skill enhancement in various occupations, and the importance of specialized training in geriatric care.

The conclave will also feature music concerts

Dr. Thomas Isaac, in anticipation of the Migration Conclave 2024, highlighted the significant contribution expatriates can make to Kerala’s knowledge economy and foreign exchange growth.

The conclave is open to paper presentations, and interested individuals can register through the official website, where discussion topics are also available.

The online registration process has already commenced, with many Malayalis registering their names in anticipation of this global gathering.
