In Scotland, 1 out of 3 people have been involved in Solidarity towards migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. To showcase this, and to encourage others to become involved, the Glasgow Caledonian University Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health, SIRIUS and TransSOL partner, is organising a secret event to engage people with the issue of solidarity towards migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers.
The event will take place around 4pm of 17th of June in the main hall of the Kelvingrove Museum at the end of the Family Day of Glasgow Science Festival. The main aim of the event is to engage people with the issue of solidarity towards migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers.
It will also be an opportunity to showcase some of the findings from two large collaborative and multidisciplinary research projects TransSOL (www.transsol.eu) and SIRIUS (www.sirius-project.eu) that reveal how claims and discourses about European solidarity towards migrants, refugees and asylum seekers are related to debates about European identities and cultures. The event is funded by the research programme Horizon 2020, the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme.
