Workshop
Description

Policies focused on the integration of migrants and refugees are often driven by conventional wisdoms and fear, and there are persistent concerns that integration policies are failing both host communities and migrants in Europe, Africa, and elsewhere. In this context, the research unit Institutions and Political Inequality will host a two-day workshop to bring together practitioners in government, decision-makers from international and non-governmental organizations, and leading researchers in this field.
