Co-designing an inclusive Europe 

Migrations and migrants in the EU: 

changing narratives – modifying practices – influencing policies 

Policy roundtable based on findings from ten H2020 projects

Brussels, March 1st, 2022 (08:30-16:00)

Including migrants in the European Union has not been a uniform process and has revealed several  obstacles in the path of making the inclusion and integration of people on the move efficient, humane,  and dignified. This roundtable aims at sharing the findings from ten Horizon2020 projects on legal  protection of refugees and migrants, on the (economic, cultural, political) impact of their presence on  local, regional, or European constituencies, on innovative solutions to enhancing integration and  cohesion, and on the role of domestic agents. This roundtable will bring together researchers,  practitioners, journalists, and policy-makers to discuss the potential of re-interpreting existing  narratives, to present good practices resulting from the ongoing projects, and to inform political  decision-making processes.

The roundtable will consist of two parts: The morning session will include two parallel panels dedicated  to (i) Economic, legal, and social factors and practices of inclusion, as well as (ii) Fostering exchange and  challenging narratives in cultural spaces. Policy recommendations, policy papers, good practices, and  innovative solutions of the projects will be shared. During a following panel discussion in the afternoon, the project representatives will share the floor with stakeholders, addressing questions posed by a  moderator and the audience.

This event offers a rare opportunity to engage with various researchers and practitioners from 34 countries including 21 EU countries, representing a total of 135 institutions. Get insights into state-of the-art fieldwork and practices and learn about solutions that have been tested on the ground!
