A discussion of how to support resettlement and integration across the Atlantic.
Resettlement for whom? Join us for a panel discussion that centers refugee resettlement, and specifically the criteria determining resettlement. Panelists and discussion will examine the differentiation between the resettlement process in Germany within its European framework in contrast to the United States. We will also discuss the current challenges and offers that the German government is doing to resettle more refugees and how this is changing the political landscape.
Join the Transatlantic Refugee Resettlement Network and Migration Hub Network - Heidelberg for a discussion about refugee urban integration. This event will bring the discussion on refugee resettlement to the local level, exploring what urban integration looks like specifically in Heidelberg, and how that compares to the US and other parts of Europe. The panel discussion will explore topics from the effects of decentralised housing to language and integration to what a utopian model would consist of.
Come network and learn more about organizations and projects supporting people's livelihoods and how these can or have helped refugees to build a sustainable life. Meet other professionals working in this field and share in the great coffee and snacks provided by the 1951 Coffee Company.
On November 4, 2016, CMCE, with generous funding from the Robert Bosch Foundation, held the first Transatlantic Refugee Resettlement Network event. The Roundtable event brought together refugee resettlement practitioners, researchers, advocates, professors, and students from Germany, the US, and other parts of the world. They convened to learn about and discuss refugee resettlement, share relevant research, connect with one another, and form the Network. The event was held at the German Consulate and featured a number of experts in the field. Over 40 people were in attendance.
