International conference | Potentials and Limitations of Subnational Responses to the Migrant Question in Europe
The international conference “Potentials and Limitations of Subnational Responses to the Migrant Question in Europe” will take place on March 4-5, 2021.
It will bring together mayors and local representatives, EU policy makers, civil society and scholars to discuss and envision local-level responses to challenges connected to increasing flows of migrants and refugees in the EU.
The current public-health crisis attests some cold facts; first, that contemporary threats, such as major diseases or natural disasters, cannot be stopped at borders. Second, that nationally planned, centrally imposed responses to challenges that are transnational in nature and local in effect are bound to be fruitless, disproportional and divisive. Third, that lack of access to basic services, rights and decent living conditions due to “unforeseen circumstances” is both possible and terrible.
