    The research project “Places of Welcome” aims to identify best practices in the activities that both state and particularly non-state actors develop in the attempt of positively including newcomers, which refers to both migrants and refugees, in different European Countries.

    The project will focus specifically on those activities that have emerged as particularly welcoming for those on the move and have clearly benefitted both newcomers and established members of the receiving society, in the attempt of providing a form of inclusion that is not only temporarily but also sustainable in present and future times. This sustainability is intended both in terms of: respect of societal peace and human security of all those concerned; respect of the human and natural environment; and, last but not least, respect and sensitivity towards the realities of the variety of needs and circumstances that different genders can have.
