The Integration and Migration Foundation Our People (MISA) is happy to invite you to take part in the upcoming international conference „Integration Challenges in a Radicalizing World”. This conference will take place on 29 and 30 November in Park Inn by Radisson Meriton Conference & Spa Hotel Tallinn, Estonia.
In light of the increasing migration and refugee crisis, growing diversity, and escalating global conflicts, now is the crucial time for Estonia and Europe at large to revisit the existing perceptions of what is important for integrating society, further analyze integration policies, and re-think ways to approach this complex issue. It is also important to review the issues related to integration, that have already been on the agenda for recent decades.
Our aim is to bring together integration experts from Estonia and around Europe, to share experiences and best practices. We wish to provide the opportunity for all interested and involved stakeholders to put their minds together in the quest for finding a better way of sustaining and developing an integrated society.
The Conference presenters are among the most recognized international experts from Canada, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Estonia. They will address various topics, including radicalization and its prevention, acculturation, cultural diversity, inclusion and diversity in the labor market, as well as the role civil society and the education system play in creating an environment that supports cultural diversity in society.
The Conference participants are integration experts, policy-makers, researchers, members of civil society, business owners and representatives of international organizations – all of which are interested in contributing to the discussion about the future of our diverse societies.
Conference registration is open until Tuesday, 22th November or until there are no more available spots. Please register for the conference here.
Participation at the conference is free of charge. The working language will be English, with simultaneous translation to Estonian.
The conference is organized by MISA and supported by the Estonian Ministry of Culture, as well as partners of the British Council, Royal Norwegian Embassy, Royal Danish Embassy, Tallinn University and others.
We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming conference!
