Minorities and Migration – Cooperation for Integration

31 May 2018  at 10 am – 4 pm
Renaissance Brussels Hotel
Rue du Parnasse 19, Brussels, Belgium

The large migration flows in Europe have changed our reality. Integration is a two-way process, where everybody involved has to adapt to the habits and values of others. There are a lot of challenges but also wonderful opportunities.

We want to highlight the important theme of integration – specifically migrants integrating in a minority language. The citizens of language minorities often have a good appreciation for other minorities. They know that attitudes, understanding and collaboration are key words. It is all about people meeting and sharing their daily life. How can we help to build a more tolerant society? What actions are there to take?

There are many voices in integration policies and views as to when an individual has become integrated. What is actually meant by integration? In Finland, integration is measured primarily in terms of labour policy measures, while indicators at EU level, as well as the national and local level, also take up other aspects such as participation, mutual trust, social relations, security, and stability. How could these aspects be promoted? It is said that integration involves two or several processes, but very little focus has been on how people who are already living in the country become integrated.

The seminar provides an arena for constructive and inspiring discussion between European policy makers and people working with language minority issues throughout Europe. A number of distinguished speakers will share their research and best practices. The seminar programme will be distributed shortly.
