Welcoming refugees in universities: a three-year perspective

Since the increase in the number of migrants into Europe from 2015, many European universities have opened their doors to refugees who were forced to interrupt their studies in their countries of origin. This session will present the results of various projects, some in partnership with local authorities, among universities of the Coimbra Group three years after their implementation and discuss the prospects of these kinds of projects in other universities.
