The first of our online seminars looks at successful municipal strategies for immigrant integration from Dublin and New Haven.

The Integration Learning Exchange

With our first webinar on March 24, Cities of Migration launches its Integration Learning Exchange, an online forum for presenting good ideas and new thinking on urban integration practice in global cities. Post-event, join guest contributors, participants and the broader community in Conversations in Integration to share ideas and keep the conversation going. Look for updates in March!


Cities of Migration Update

Next month, Cities of Migration will launch the website in German and French, with more Good Ideas in Integration under the themes of Work, Live, Learn, Connect and Plan. Take a look at banking services at Lloyds TSB in London, intergenerational language learning in Frankfurt, Boston’s Backstreet entrepreneurs and mosques in Duisberg. … and more.

Since its December 2008 beta release, the Cities of Migration site has reached over 5,000 international influencers in government, media, academia and the private and non-profit sectors and has registered users from over 50 cities and received visitors from over 80 countries.
