in Europe

The inHERE project organises a webinar about useful concepts for projects with refugee population

The event, led by two Law professors from the University of Barcelona, will take place on the 20th September 2017 at 3pm (CET).

On October 4, 2017, at 4:15 pm (CET), the inHERE project will organize its first webinar, titled “Introduction to useful concepts for your projects with refugee population”.

The inHERE project is concerned with providing opportunities for refugees to participate in the European Higher Education Area. To do this, inHERE strengthens knowledge sharing, peer-support and academic partnership in an attempt to facilitate access and integration of refugees in European Higher Education Institutions (HEI).

Webinars are framed within the second series of the project, the Living Lab, which is led by the University of Barcelona. Their purpose is to share, exchange, evaluate, commonly create initiatives, projects and activities developed by the University communities to promote the integration of refugee students in HEI.

Specifically, the purpose of the first webinar is to clarify some ideas regarding legal and social concepts such as refugee, asylum seeker, migrant, refugee-like situation, asylum, subsidiary protection and its implementation.  The proper understanding of these concepts is essential to work with this group of people and to manage the implications of projects and activities. The webinar speakers will be Dr. Andreu Oresti and Dr. Georgios Milios, professors at the Faculty of Law of the University of Barcelona.

The free event, which will be conducted in English, is addressed to members of University communities (professors, administrative and service staff [AdSS], technical staff…) who are running or are planning to run projects or activities to facilitate the access of refugees to HEI, their social integration, as well as to all the University public interested in these initiatives.
