On Friday September 27th the final conference of the DIAMINT project is to take place at Erasmus University Rotterdam. The DIAMINT project, funded by the Volkswagenstiftung, is a two-years project focusing on ‘science-society dialogues on migrant integration in Europe’ (see www.diamint.eu).
The project, coordinated by Han Entzinger and Peter Scholten from Erasmus University, involved case studies on science-society dialogues in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Italy and the EU. Partners included the University of Edinburgh (Christina Boswell and Alistair Hunter), Sheffield University (Andrew Geddes and Marthe Achtnich), Vienna University (Maren Borkert), the European Forum for Migration Studies of the University of Bamberg (Friedrich Heckmann) and the University of Turin (Tiziana Caponio). The conference presents the key findings of the project (to be published in a special issue of JCPA and a book project) as well as several key speakers that will respond to the project findings, including Marco Martiniello, Liz Collett, Korie Louwes and several others to be confirmed.
