Migration – from perceptions to reality

PRESENTED ON MAY 17, 2019
@ SCIENCE FOR EUROPE, SCIENCE FOR ME, POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA

Migration is a divisive topic and often marks a line of division in political debates. Migration is also a grey area, often dominated by the lack of information on the one hand and by false information on the other. In this talk, JRC data scientist Michele Vespe sheds light on the data and numbers that can help us understand migration and help build bridges between  science and the public debate surrounding migration and migration policies.

Friend Crisis

BY PETRA KAI KORMENDY

"Refugees are coming to Maastricht ... we want to make them feel welcome."

At Refugee Project Maastricht, refugees are called friends, and from that idea a new dialogue can open up about our relationships to the situation and to each other as humans.
