METREX is a Supporting Partner of this Horizon 2020 project. As it draws to a close after three years, an international conference will be held to share research findings and to enhance dialogue with key stakeholders and the public.
The MATILDE project investigated social and economic impacts of migration in rural, peripheral and mountainous regions of Europe. The MATILDE International Conference will discuss the results from 13 case study regions in 10 participating countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United Kingdom). It will also highlight ways to promote socially inclusive and territorially balanced growth by stimulating the potential for local development through migration and everyday diversity.
The Conference aims to create space for dialogue between researchers, policy-makers and various social and economic milieus in order to provide better responses to the challenges posed by migration and integration governance.
