Seminar on Danish and Finnish experiences with supporting refugees
Have you ever thought about how other countries have set up the reception and integration systems for refugees? How is your chance to find out.
We are organizing on Wednesday, 22 November a seminar where we showcase and discuss the refugee integration support systems of Denmark and Finland. Speakers are from the Danish Refugee Council and the Finnish Red Cross. The seminar takes place in Tallinn, at Euroopa Hotel's (Paadi 5) conference room "Ida-Euroopa".
How are the initial reception and language trainings organized in Finland and Denmark? How fast labour market integration is expected from refugees and how are they supported in that? What is the role of municipalities and what is the role of volunteer organizations? These and other questions will come under scrutiny at the seminar.
The seminar takes place in English. Prior registration is necessary, please do it here!
