International Conference on Reception of Refugees
On January 25-27, 2017, Norrköping invites politicians and officials in European municipalities, as well as researchers, to join us for a two-day conference to discuss best practices and innovative solutions for receiving refugees.
The conference, which is an initiative from the Chair of the Municipal Executive Board of Norrköping, Lars Stjernkvist, will provide new insights into different aspects of the reception of newly arrived refugees and will also offer opportunities to:
• Learn about new research in the field and discuss the topics with researchers
• Participate in workshops to share your own best practice, and learn about how other municipalities take on challenges of receiving new refugees (the need for jobs, housing, education, language skills, etc.)
• Build networks and find new partners for future projects
Participating researchers will also have the possibility to find interesting cases, partners or topics for further research.
Time: January 25th – January 27th 2017
Language: The conference will be held in English
Venue: Louis de Geer Conference Centre, Norrköping, Sweden
