"From Housing to home making" in Gothenburg

The conference was organised by the Centre on Global Migration of the University of Gothenburg 

It presented insights of social inclusion of refugees from research and practice.
Housing and integration for refugees in Europe are often technocratic and highly politicized. We want to counter this approach by focusing on the processes of homemaking, belonging and social inclusion of newcomers.
