20 June 2016

Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay

Back to Events


An International Learning Exchange Conference.

To facilitate knowledge exchange between Welsh and European local authorities on the latest evidence and good practice on migrant integration and to enable local authority practitioners in Wales to consider the value of developing or updating a strategic framework for the integration of migrants and refugees: potential aims, content and implications. The aim is to share ideas and experiences and to underpin the event with evidence and analysis from COMPAS’ research including recent European projects and to identify four Welsh local authorities which would be interested to engage with us in developing such an approach.
