Time for action: integration policies in Scotland post Covid-19

On 11 June (15:00 – 16:30 CEST) the Open University of Scotland in partnership with universities of Parma and Glasgow organize an online event on the new approach needed after C-19 to unleash the benefits that migrants, refugees and asylum seekers bring to Scottish society and economy.

Drawing on Scottish democratic principles and human rights this event explores the potential for inclusive employment, entrepreneurship and innovation that can be generated both for and by new arrivals in Scotland. Evidence presented from three projects; the Brexit and Covid Project (The Open University), the SIRIUS project (University of Parma and Glasgow Caledonian University) and the GLIMER Project (Glasgow and Edinburgh University) will underpin discussions.

Following the event organisers plan to draft a policy paper. Drawing on research, lived experiences and plenary discussions this will highlight the opportunities and longer-term benefits of a coherent policy in relation to migrant, refugee and asylum seekers in this area.

This event is a unique opportunity to engage in discussions with experts in their field. Will be present as speakers: Professor Simone Baglioni, Dr. Francesca Calo, Dr Hilary Collins, Carol Howells, Professor Simon Lee - Chair, Dr Timothy Peace.
