This two-day conference brings together leading experts on integration issues, policy-makers and hands-on practitioners from Estonia and around Europe to share visionary ideas, research results and best practices for the effective integration in diverse societies.
Language is one of the foundations of culture and identity. Knowledge of a number of languages gives people an advantage in education and on the labour market. At the same time, the successful functioning of a multilingual society demands a significant contribution from the state and from society as a whole. Striking the right balance is complicated, but worth the effort.
European societies face similar challenges with diversity and integration. We want to learn from practical experience and research – to identify and share the best practices from around Europe, in order to apply them locally.
The conference is for everyone who is interested in integration issues – researchers and students, policy-makers and administrators, civil society leaders and activists, who want to contribute to the discussion – and action in the field of integration.
