Refugee engagement: concepts for responsible and sustainable management

A lack of readiness in organisational structures can stand in the way of refugees’ integration. This session will focus on refugees who are eligible for higher education and career development in academia and beyond. We will present innovative concepts and promising examples of policy development and operational refugee services in Sweden, Romania and Germany, and we will hold a discussion on the status quo of policies and refugee services in different national and academic contexts.
