Immigration to Western countries has been on a high level for several decades. Most immigrants live in large cities and, hence, contemporary migration has a strong urban flavour. Also the off-spring of immigrants, the so-called second generation, is overwhelmingly urban.
The Argumenta Seminar "Immigrant Generations in Urban Contexts" focusses on dynamics of immigrant generations in Western cities and looks at the following questions. How is the urban milieu reflected as part of the immigrant experience? What do know about the integration trajectories of migrants from a generational perspective? What is the future of superdiverse cities?
These issues, and many more, will be approached by experts from universities, public administration, NGOs, and the media. The Keynote speakers are Dr. Renee Luthra (Director, Centre for Migration Studies, University of Essex) and Dr. Jens Schneider (Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies, University of Osnabrück). In addition to the keynote speeches, the two-day seminar includes workshops. The first day of the seminar is open to the public and the second day workshops are for invited guests only.
The event is free of charge.
Programme coming soon.
