MIG Talks – discussions on integration
To enable Swedish missions abroad to initiate dialogues about migration and integration issues, the Swedish Migration Agency have together with the SI developed a half day conference concept called MIG Talks. It is based on the Swedish Migration Agency initiative MIG Talks, which is being implemented with a range of partners and target groups in Sweden in 2016-2017.
The aim of MIG Talks is to create a platform for exchanges of information, experience and perspectives between new inhabitants and various public actors, and thereby to spread awareness about migrationand integration and contribute to a nuanced and inclusive public discourse.
