FOCUS will take part in a joint Inclusive Europe Policy Roundtable coordinated by the SO-CLOSE project to present policy implications of our research findings on the socio-economic and socio-psychological integration of migrants in the EU.

Including migrants in the European Union has not been a uniform process and has revealed several obstacles in the path of making the inclusion of people on the move efficient, humane, and dignified. This roundtable aims at sharing the findings from ten Horizon2020 projects on legal protection of refugees and migrants, on the (economic, cultural, political) impact of their presence on local, regional, or European constituencies, on innovative solutions to enhancing cohesion, and on the role of domestic agents.

Together with nine other EU-funded research projects, SO-CLOSE is organizing a joint policy roundtable to bring together researchers, practitioners, journalists, and policy-makers to discuss the potential of re-interpreting existing narratives, to present good practices resulting from the ongoing projects, and to inform political decision-making processes.

📆1 March 2022, 8h30-16h
