“With millions of people around the world currently leaving their homes to flee, FOCUS, with its key messages of fostering trust and reciprocity, as well as intergroup relations between arriving and receiving communities, provides a fundamentally relevant framework for successful two-way dynamic integration that can be easily transferred to and used in other global contexts.” – Sabina Dziadecka Gråbæk, Senior Project Manager at the PS Centre
Registrations are now open to attend the FOCUS Final Conference, Living Well Together, on the 1st and 2nd of June 2022 which will take place in a hybrid setting, on-site in Brussels and online.
The conference will review the past decade of dynamic integration in Europe, showcase the results of the FOCUS project and methods of implementing the results, including in the current context of increased migration from Ukraine. The results of the FOCUS project will be discussed with integration practitioners from civil society, academia and politics.
Since 2019, the PS Centre has been leading FOCUS, an integration research project funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme. FOCUS aims to help policy makers, civil society organisations and communities to understand important dimensions of dynamic integration with a particular focus on fostering social connection between arriving and receiving communities.
Date and Time
The conference takes place at La Tricoterie, in Brussels. Online participation is possible.
Attendance if free but upon registration only. Registrations to participate are possible here.
