Sabine Meier attended the International Metropolis Conference 2017 in The Hague
FoKos member Jun.-Prof. Dr. Dipl.-Ing. Sabine Meier presented preliminary results of her research on socio-spatial inclusion of asylum seekers in German and Dutch small and medium sized cities at the International Metropolis Conference 2017 ´Migration and Global Justice´.
Besides, she led three workshops where international researchers and policy makers presented papers which dealt with Diversity, Belonging and Inter-ethnic Relations. The International Metropolis Project is the largest international network of researchers, policy makers, and community groups engaged in identifying, understanding, and responding to developments in migration and diversity. The events have been effective in connecting researchers, key decision-makers, and practitioners around the globe, facilitating the production and effective communication of policy-relevant knowledge amongst different stakeholders since the mid-1990s. The network has steadily developed to include partners in North America, Europe, and Australia, with a growing presence in Africa, Latin America, and the Asia-Pacific region. In a world increasingly characterized by international mobility and large regional displacements, there is an urgent need to exchange scientific knowledge about migration and diversity, and to share experiences, challenges, and best practices in their management. It is the goal of the Metropolis Project that it will enable dialogue and that the efforts of the project serve the interests of all parties involved in the migration process.
