CCHR network meeting Migration and/or Refugees

3500

It is self-evident that migration and refugees are very important and sensitive topics within society, and will not disappear from either the political or social agenda any time soon. Therefore, it is foreseeable that in the coming years NWO and H2020 will announce several calls concerning this subject. Further to this, the rector has declared that from a standpoint of social responsibility this should be an important focus area for Utrecht University.

An initial investigation reveals that within UU (Humanities, Law, Social Sciences) a lot is already happening, however, there is a lack of communicative cohesion with regard to both what other colleagues are doing or may have to offer. Therefore, this meeting brings researchers together, to see whether it is useful to combine forces and expertise – also concerning future calls for funding.
