2017 Social Innovation for Refugee Inclusion Conference

2017 Social Innovation for Refugee Inclusion Conference

This Conference, organised jointly by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), the US Mission to the European Union, Mission of Canada to the European Union and the Migration Policy Institute is taking place on 16th and 17th November. 

The event follows up on the Social Innovation for Refugee Inclusion seminar that took place in September 2016. Following the arrival of large amounts of migrants from 2015 onwards, a large amount of non-traditional actors has initiated innovative ways to foster the inclusion of newcomers. Yet, this movement has struggled to bring on structural change. The event aims to reflect on how this field can mature in partnership with other stakeholders, with a particular focus on labour market inclusion.
