Local approaches, city-wide strategies, and government policy are all critical in enabling migrants to integrate, contribute, and prosper in urban areas, but how can we build inclusive communities at a time of economic strain and heated national debate on immigration?
This event, organized in partnership with the Maytree Foundation, Barrow Cadbury Trust, Runnymede Trust, and the Open Society Initiative for Europe’s At Home in Europe project, discusses the role of practical and local initiatives in promoting migrant integration, contribution, and participation in a shared society.
The panel highlights good practices from across the United Kingdom and the Cities of Migration international collection “Good Ideas in Integration,” which seeks to improve local integration practice in cities across the world.
