Success Stories of Refugees in Europe (UK but Online)

EventsSuccess Stories of Refugees in Europe: Celebrating the contributions of children and highly skilled adults, BAAL Multilingualism Special Interest Group and Newcastle University (Online), June 16, 2021, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm (BST).

Europe has experienced major waves of refugee immigration, which has led to over a million refugees and asylum seekers across EU countries to date. Children and adults have been equally affected and often placed in marginalised positions by their host communities who often failed to fully value their contributions. This event, which has been organised by the BAAL Multilingualism SIG and hosted by Newcastle University’s School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences, celebrates the linguistic and cultural contributions of refugees, both children and adults, in Europe. It will bring together researchers, practitioners and members of the public interested in current debates about refugee integration in Europe.

The event is free but registration is required.
