In 2016 the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) and its professional journal, European Political Science (EPS), agreed to collaborate on an annual debate/roundtable series, to take place at the ECPR General Conferences. The plan was for the editors of the EPS to invite four experts (both academic and/or practitioners) to discuss a pressing theme in a plenum session of the General Conference.

The hope of the organizers was that the debate would encourage professional political scientists to engage with pressing political issues and to generate broader engagement on these issues. Toward that end, the debates were to be subsequently published in the pages of EPS.

The inaugural debate in this series, which was held at the 10th General Conference of the ECPR at Charles University in Prague on 8 September 2016, addressed the challenges associated with migration and free movement in Europe.
