migraciones2The European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation and the Agency for International Development Cooperation (AEXCID) have organised the session “Integration Answers Facing the Migratory-Economic Crises”, that will take place next Thursday, 30th of November, at the University Residence ‘Hernán Cortés’, in Badajoz. The activity, which is part of the Campus Yuste program, is free of charge and open to the general public. It will take place in the morning and those who attend will be given a certificate issued by the Foundation.

Some of the main challenges that Europe and international cooperation development face, such as the reduction of inequalities caused by the economic and the migratory crisis, also known as the refugee crisis as a result of arm conflict and poverty, will be analysed at the session.

Different integration approaches and strategies will be worked on in order to come up with practical solutions, and proposals to enable the organised, safe, and responsible migration and mobility of people through integration strategies will specifically be dealt with.

The speakers are Tomás Calvo Buezas, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology at the Faculty of Political Science and Sociology of the Complutense University of Madrid, and founder of the Migrations and Racism Study Centre (Centro de Estudios sobre Migraciones y Racismo –CEMIRA-), and Gonzalo Fanjul Suárez, director of the Policy Analysis Department, at ISGlobal, the driving force of the porCausa Foundation (journalism and research against poverty), and co-editor of the blog El País 3.500 Millones. The table of good practices will count with the territorial coordinator of the CEPAIM Foundation in Extremadura, Mehrad Alizadeh, and the autonomous coordinator of the Spanish Red Cross in Extremadura, José Aurelio González Peinado.

This activity is part of the project “Europe in the Face of Global Challenges Concerning Development Cooperation” (“Europa ante los desafíos globales de la cooperación al desarrollo”), financed by the AEXCID, and whose aim is to study the role played by the European Unionin depth, in Extremadura, as a region that faces great internal challenges within a global framework of crisis and transformation and which is committed to Sustainable Development as a global challenge, where cooperation among public, private, and civil society actors, as well as among regions and countries, is key for the achievement of shared goals.
