Languages, Refugees and Migration: Research Roundtable Event, Glasgow, Monday 7 December, 12.00-18.00

Please see below for details of this FREE half-day participatory Knowledge Exchange event: 

Numerous projects across Glasgow (and further afield) are working in Languages and their interconnection with the broad areas of Refugee and Migration Research.  We hope to create a space where over the course of the event we build up wide ranging overview of the research landscape in Languages, Refugees and Migration, with the opportunity to discuss and debate the work being undertaken.

We welcome anyone working or researching in these areas to come along to listen and discuss any specific issues or questions you are grappling with in your own context.
