DANDELION is currently planning the organisation of a half-day research/policy workshop on 7th June 2017 at the European Parliament in Brussels.
Under the topic “democracy, inclusion, and the future of citizenship in the EU”, the workshop aims at sharing key findings of past and ongoing EC co-funded research and offer a discussion forum where distinguished scientists in the field of migration, politics, sociology, anthropology, etc. will address crucial issues in migration and integration, namely:
- Media and the representations of the refugee crisis, the migrants themselves, and the drift to sensationalist reporting;
- The dynamics of anti-EU right-wing parties;
- Integration (economic, social, cultural) and positive political and civic participation in European democracy: diversity as an opportunity and an added value for innovation; and
- Education as a principal pathway for integration of the post-migration generations.
