Workshop at Integrating Cities conference

5 September 2013

COMPAS is hosting a workshop at the Integrating Cities Conference

The conference will be held 9-10 September in Tampere, Finland. The COMPAS workshop session will present findings from a European study carried out by Open Society Fellow Sarah Spencer on city responses to migrants with irregular status, "City Responses to Migrants with Irregular Status". The Director of PICUM will then explore strong examples of policy and practice from Utrecht and Genoa.

The session will provide an opportunity to discuss the nature of the practical and policy challenges cities face in relation to irregular (undocumented) migrants, how cities across Europe are responding, and what steps could be taken to assist them to do so in future.
