ESRC Festival of Social Science 2018: EU migrants’ experiences of civil society in Wales
ESRC is part of UK Research and Innovation
This event looks at how European migrants contribute to civil society in Wales
Researchers from Aberystwyth University and Roehampton University will discuss the findings of a research project (carried out between 2016 and 2017) which looked at various ways in which European migrants are involved in civil society organisations and activities in different parts of Wales. The project also explored how participating in civil society affects migrants’ sense of belonging. The event will bring together a range of stakeholders to discuss the lessons from this research, and how they could be used to inform policy and practice.
The event will include a panel discussion and Q&A session where practitioners will talk about their experiences of EU migration and civil society. It will explore new ideas and ways of thinking about migration and civil society, with a focus on common experiences, practices and challenges. The event will be of particular interest to third sector workers and policy makers.
The event will end with a buffet lunch and a chance to network.
