Talking to each other rather than about each other
Discussion Forum: Migration and Integration in the context of global-local development
In Jena, some good solutions for living side by side of long term inhabitants and newcomers have been around for some time. Many civil society actors in Jena either work directly with displaced people or they are involved in researching and/or providing education around the issues faced by refugees and migrants and the challenges these pose for global, sustainable development. But integration and migration does not just happen and neither are locally isolated processes. Rather they are both the result and the driving force for globalized development. They raise new questions for social participation and living together in local and global contexts.
