THINK TANK on Migration, Displaced Persons and Refugees
Sibiu, 4-5 Nov 2019, Ramada Hotel Sibiu
Aligned with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and of achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular SDG 4: ‘Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all’, the UNESCO Chair in Quality Management of Higher Education and Lifelong Learning and PMM & E Foundation invite you to participate in a THINK TANK on migration with the theme: „The Roads Now Taken: Higher Education Responses and Responsibilities for International Migration, Displaced Persons and Refugees” that will take place from 4-5 Nov, 2019, at the Ramada Hotel, Sibiu, Romania.
The event aims to look at robust, sustainable and concrete ways in which higher education institutions (HEIs) can support the integration of migrants, refugees and displaced persons in their destination/host countries and prepare them for their eventual return to their home nations when it is conducive to do so. Specifically, the THINK TANK will look into short and long-term institutional policies and solutions for improving the quality of life of people in their host countries, with a specific focus on the European dimension of forced migration to the continent from North Africa and the Middle East.
We look forward to welcoming you to the open session!
