W1: Introduction to useful concepts for your projects with refugee population

On October 4, 2017, the inHERE project held its first webinar, titled “Introduction to useful concepts for your projects with refugee population”. The webinar speakers were Dr. Andreu Oresti and Dr. Georgios Milios, professors at the Faculty of Law of the University of Barcelona. The webinar was in English and has been recorded.

The purpose of this first webinar of the inHERE project was 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.

Webinars are framed within the second series of the inHERE 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.

The webinar was free and was addressed to members of University communities (professors, administrative and service staff [AdSS], technical staff…) who are running or are planning to run projects and activities to facilitate the access of refugees to HEI and their social integration.
