Sustainable integration in the Nordic countries in the face of Covid-19: What are we learning?
Virtual conference arranged by the Nordic Council of Ministers
How are the national, civil society and local actors addressing the challenges and opportunities of immigrant integration in the Nordic countries? 2020 has brought collective challenges in the form of Covid-19 and its economic and social aftermath, revealing both challenges and opportunities in the field of integration. How can we continue to work for robust integration of immigrants and refugees in various spheres of society? Have the novel challenges of 2020 brought new knowledge that can enrich our approaches in the future?
This virtual conference on sustainable integration of immigrants and refugees in the Nordic countries will bring people from different fields and organisations together to address these questions in four sessions.
Invitees are professionals working in related fields at the national, regional or local level in the Nordic countries. You are invited to participate in all four sessions, or to select those sessions most relevant to you.
