2-3 Sept: A workshop “Migrant Integration in Rural Territories”, Finland

What can we learn from the rural integration experiences? Nordregio Research Fellow Leneisja Jungsberg presents a study “From migrants to workers” at the Finnish Rural Parliament in Leppävirta.

Europe has witnessed a huge influx of migrants over the past few years. Nordregio joins the Finnish Village Action Association and Hela Sverige Ska Leva to discuss the migration effects on rural territories and integration opportunities for both rural areas and newly arrived people.

When? 2 September, 14.00-15.30

Where? Vanha Pappila (Savon Katu 19), Henrikin sali.

The discussion is a part of the Finnish Rural Parliament which gathers various actors from across Finland, the Nordic countries and Europe, who are interested in developing the countryside. It is a forum for everyone, including rural residents and decision-makers, associations and entrepreneurs, researchers and developers and funders, villages and towns. The participants are also invited to the Partners’ Market where among others Nordregio researchers will provide the information about the institute’s activities and latest research on rural development.
