Additionally, a representative of the Estonian Foreign Policy Institute will give an overview of the situation for the EU and UK citizens post-Brexit.
  • The second session will focus on changes to Estonian citizenship policies during the last couple of years and the future of Estonian citizenship. These developments will be analysed from the perspective of a researcherpolicymaker and a practitioner.
  • In the last part of the conference the newly published Annual report on migration and citizenship will be presented, highlighting the most interesting statistical and policy trends in Estonia and elsewhere in Europe and giving an overview of the New Pact on Migration and Asylum.

The official languages of the conference are Estonian and English. The conference will be held at the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences (room 108, Kase 61, Tallinn) and online (the link to the event will be shared with registered participants before the event).

Annual Nordic Conference on Integration

The Annual Nordic Conference on Integration of 2020 will take place online in November. The title of this year's conference will be: Sustainable integration in the Nordic countries in the face of Covid-19: What are we learning?

The conference will look at how national and civil society and local actors are addressing the challenges and opportunities of migrant integration in the Nordic countries.

2020 has brought collective challenges in the form of COVID-19 and its economic and social aftermath, with particular impact on the field of integration. How can we continue to work for robust integration of migrants and refugees in various spheres of society? Have the unprecedented challenges of 2020 brought new knowledge that can enrich our approaches in the future?

The virtual conference is divided in three thematic sessions and a plenary discussion:

  • Session1: Outreach to immigrant communities: Building trust and capacity for handling collective challenges (Tuesday 3 November, 13:00-15:00 CET);
  • Session 2: Segregation: Inequality in housing and geographically concentrated communities (Wednesday 4 November, 13:00-15:00 CET);
  • Session 3: Integration in the labour market (Thursday 5 November, 13:00-15:00 CET);

Czech Republic – Next Door Family 2020

29/11/2020 - 29/11/2020

On 29 November 2020,  Sunday, the Next Door Family project will bring Czech and foreign families together for a lunch. Grouped in pairs of one Czech and one migrant family, the participants will have lunch at one of their homes, under the guidance of an assistant.

The Next Door Family project, which began in 2004, has proven to be an effective and innovative tool for the integration of foreigners in the Czech Republic through much-needed personal contact. The project has been replicated in other EU countries. Before the lunch, the assistants will get in touch with both families in order to give them information about each other and the course of the meeting. If necessary, the assistants will also help break the ice when the families meet.

Both Czech and foreign families can sign up to participate in this year’s edition of Next Door via the registration form.

18th IMISCOE Annual Conference 2021: Crossing borders, connecting cultures

18th IMISCOE Annual Conference 2021: Crossing borders, connecting cultures

07/07/2021 - 09/07/2021

The research network IMISCOE (International Migration, Integration and Social Cohesion in Europe) which describes itself as "Europe's largest interdisciplinary research network in the field of migration, integration and diversity studies" will hold its annual conference for 2021 on 7-9 July 2021 in Luxembourg.

"Crossing borders, connecting cultures"

The conference proposes to "zoom deeper into people’s migration experiences by foregrounding how migration is connected to culture”. IMISCOE will explore the nexus of migration and culture in more depth by reflecting on how migration is lived, experienced, mediated and reflected through everyday cultural and artistic practice. Thereby it will seek to deepen understanding of the complexity and diversity of migration experiences on the one hand, and the possibilities of connecting different migrant experiences and groups of people on the other.

The IMISCOE research network currently consists of 55 research institutes from almost all European countries and from various disciplines, including sociology, political science, economics, law, demography, public administration, social geography and history.

More information about the conference can be found on their website.
