Students from program International Administration with German language represent Sweden and Linnaeus University in Växjö at two-week international workshop in Austria.
With globalisation in modern society the definition of borders and territories became more and more nominal. People travel all over the word, explore new destinations and cultures, get their academic degrees overseas or strive to gain a professional experience in international companies. That is why nowadays the two terms “integration” and “migration” are inseparable from each other.
This year the issue of integration and migration also became a topic of current discussion for the two-week intensive student workshop in the middle of Austrian Alps, in picturesque region Kärnten. Supported by Erasmus Program and the European Union, the workshop in Austria gave a great opportunity for students from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan (Poland), Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (Austria), Berlin School of Economics and Law (Germany), Linnaeus University in Växjö (Sweden) and University College Ghent (Belgium) to discuss various issues and problems, related to the topic of migration and integration in Europe.
Apart from the thematic countries’ presentations, which depicted the current situation on migration in Sweden, Poland, Austria, Belgium and Germany, students also prepare the short research on problems and solutions, when it comes to support and establishment of foreign entrepreneurs in Europe, successful integration of vulnerable groups of immigrants such as refugees and low-qualified labor, the solutions for the better integration for high- qualified professionals and academicians and last but not least – the strategies, directed against development of underground economy in Europe.
The international two-week workshop, which currently takes place in Austria, includes also various socials with representatives from local government of Kärnten region, governmental authorities, which actively engaged in issues of integration and migration in Austria and religious communities, which provide support to immigrants. Such intercultural insight and unique exchange of experiences and knowledge will help all participants to develop their futher work in area of migration and, without any doubts, will give fresh ideas to new projects.
