'Moving on from the Migrant Crisis:
Socio-political implications of movements to Europe'
Monday, 24 June – Tuesday, 2 July 2019
Description of the programme:
The sustained political and media focus on movements of people across the Mediterranean Sea, which peaked in 2015, has moved on. However, the people who moved remain in Europe - and the medium and long term issues of managing diversity are only just beginning to be addressed. What is life like now for those who moved a few years ago and remain in precarious living settings with insecure immigration status? How are local organizations and institutions, in the places where numbers of recent international incomers peaked in 2015-2016, moving on from the crisis of arrival to longer term questions of integration and settlement? And what are the long terms implications for a ‘new’ European politics of the language of migration crisis, given the rise in populism and far-right political movements across many European countries? Attend lectures on migration and integration, listen to real life experiences, views and insights from people working in NGOs and public authorities managing migration flows and integration in Greece and volunteer on site with an NGO.
