Cities of Welcome/Cities of Transit

  • DATE / TIME:
    2016•07•14 - 2016•07•15

    This conference, organised by UNU-GCM, openDemocracy, and the School of Law, Queen Mary University of London, will look at the ways in which the arrival and transit of refugees is currently shaping urban environments across Europe — and generating various forms of solidarity and welcoming, as well as tension and violence. This highly topical issue encompasses a number of legal and policy parameters that have not been fully analysed, and there is a lot to be gained from bringing together those most closely involved (civil society organisations, activists, academics, and local policy makers) and others with key insights (such as academics and legal experts) for the purpose of knowledge exchange before an interested global public.
