As border fences are being erected once more in Europe, ESPON - the European Observatory Network on Territorial Cohesion and Development - will hold a seminar on 8-9 December in cooperation with Luxembourg's EU presidency on the theme of "A world without borders: Refugees, cooperation and territories". The Seminar will address three policy themes:
- Territorial aspects of refugee migration to Europe;
- Cross-border cooperation;
- European macro-regional strategies.
There will also be presentations by the European Commission and the ESPON EGTC about the details of the implementation of the ESPON 2020 Cooperation Programme, including the envisaged timing for future calls for tenders, and for ideas from local and regional councils in particular for research projects that ESPON would fund.
There is no charge for participating but registration is essential. To find out more click here.
