The Integration Foundation is happy to invite you to take part in the upcoming international conference „My home, our home: what unites us in a multicultural community”. This conference will take place on 15 and 16 November 2018 in Radisson Blu Sky Hotel in Tallinn, Estonia.
The conference addresses the challenges of ensuring cohesion, peace and stability in contemporary culturally diverse societies. Increased migration along with economic downturn have triggered rise of xenophobia in many European countries, influencing both attitudes towards migrants and relations between existing cultural groups and people with migrant background. Inclusion of the second- and third generation migrants is still a challenge in several European countries.
This year the primary focus of the conference is on integration and inclusion of young people of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. An important focus will be on inclusive open national identity as important preconditions for an integrated society, feeling of “home” and belonging.
This international conference is an interdisciplinary platform bringing together key experts, policy-makers and government officials, EU organisations, research institutions and teams working in the field of integration.
Conference speakers are recognized international experts from United States of America, Canada, United Kingdom, Denmark, Latvia, Finland, Sweden, France and Estonia. They will address various topics related to the role of culture, common national identity, media, diverse labour market, active civil society and the education system play in creating the environment that supports development of inclusive shared identity and cohesion in culturally diverse societies.
Conference participants are integration experts, policy-makers, researchers, members of civil society, business owners and representatives of international organizations – all of which are interested in contributing to the discussion about the future of our diverse societies.
Conference registration is open until Monday, 5 November or until there are no more available spots.
Participation at the conference is free of charge. The working language will be English, with simultaneous translation to Estonian and Russian.
The conference is organised by Estonian Integration Foundation with the support from the Estonian Ministry of Culture, and with the help of The British Council, Canadian Embassy, U.S. Embassy, University of Tartu, Tallinn University and other partners.
We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming conference!
