Aston Centre for Interdisciplinary Research into Language and Diversity (InterLanD) presents a seminar on The Politics of Integration in Europe.
Wednesday 13 January 2010
10am - 4pm
Lakeside Conference Centre
‘Integration’ is a highly contested policy term in contemporary Europe - it touches on one important set of social relations, linking groups constructed as ‘hosts’, migrants’ and ‘minorities’.
Using four European countries (France, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and England), this seminar will look at contemporary practice and ask: Who is supposed to integrate? Into what and how, why and under what conditions?
The short papers and round table will discuss the ramifications of the answers to these questions for policy-making and political action.
The speakers are:
Véronique de Rudder (URMIS, Université Paris-Diderot)
Aude Rabaud (URMIS, Université Paris-Diderot)
Prof Mahamet Timera (URMIS, Université Paris-Diderot)
Dr Ronit Lentin (Trinity College Dublin)
Dr Piaras McÉinri (University College, Cork)
Chris Gilligan (University of the West of Scotland)
