The REMESO Forte centre at Linköping University, in partnership with the Municipality of Norrköping and the think tank Arena Idé, invites you to the conference Welcoming Refugees – Local European Experiences.

Norrköping invites politicians and officials in European municipalities, as well as researchers in the social sciences, to join us for a two-day conference to discuss best practices and innovative solutions for receiving refugees in our cities.

Are you included in the target groups and want to participate? Register to the conference

The conference 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

The conference will be held in English
