Europe is geographically divided on the issue of immigration. Large cities are the home of Cosmopolitan Europe, where immigration is viewed as a positive contribution to society. Outside the large cities – and especially in the countryside – is Nationalist Europe, where immigration is a threat to the social order.
Welcome Week is an annual series of events. Immigrants, refugees, and native-born residents come together to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone. We will host a panel discussion and reception with local area immigrants, refugees, and service providers. This event will be co-hosted by DPL and ECDC’s African Community Center. All are welcome!
This year’s summit is organized around “Refugees, Migration and the Internationalization of Higher Education”. We believe that this theme is both timely and important to higher education given the always increasing movement of peoples around the world and particularly the current refugee crises in the world. For the purposes of the summit, the definition of “migration” is very broad and can include such volunteer migrants as students and scholars crossing borders to live elsewhere for a period of time, as well as migrants as refugees who are migrating for safety, survival or greater peace.
