April 17 - The Integration Puzzle: Challenges and Opportunities

The Integration Puzzle: Challenges and Opportunities

Immigration is on the rise, whereas 5 years ago the wave of immigrants came predominantly from war torn regions now we are seeing an ever more mobile world population by choice. People choose to immigrate for a variety of reason, be it work, personal or simply out of the desire to live somewhere else.

With this new and ever increasing wave of immigrants come new questions about what a successful integration in local society looks like, and what the challenges and opportunities are for both the immigrants and the local population. We believe that integration is not only down to the individual but that the business sector, employers and governments play a crucial role in helping with integration.

We have invited panelists to reflect on these challenges and opportunities, so be sure to join us for an inspiring discussion.
