INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: EFFECTS OF MIGRATION ON POPULATION STRUCTURES IN EUROPE

01/12/2008–02/12/2008, Vienna, Austria

Unprecedented streams of migration to European countries have forced European governments to reconsider their immigration policies. What is going to happen with migration in the future? Given the further divide of the world into rich and poor, do we expect more people to look for a better life and seek their fortune in Europe? What could be political measures aimed at optimising migration flows and what should be their guiding criteria? These are some of the questions this conference will address.

CITIZENSHIP EDUCATION FACING NATIONALISM AND POPULISM IN EUROPE. STRATEGIES - COMPETENCIES - PRACTICE

06/11/2008–08/11/2008, Sofia, Bulgaria

New forms of nationalist and populist movements have arrived in Europe. What began as a fringe campaign has become a challenge for politics and political systems in many EU nations. The 4th European conference of the NECE-Network is addressing these new and complicated issues. The conference will invite practitioners and experts from all over Europe to exchange interpretations and experiences of nationalism and populism in their respective countries. Nationalist and populist currents are a pan-European problem and therefore have to be discussed in a new and multilateral fashion.

The series bring together the various stakeholders in these policy debates: the legal profession, researchers, employers, trade unions, human rights and other civil society organisations.
