International Conference on Education and Migrations 2022, CEI/ISCAP-P.PORTO. New date and call for papers.

The International Conference on Education and Migrations, organized by the Centre for Intercultural Studies (CEI), will be held on 10 March 2022, at the Porto Accounting and Business School (ISCAP) of the Polytechnic of Porto (P.PORTO).

Migrations in Europe and associated countries have social implications and raise issues at local, national, and European levels. Many researchers concur that education is the key to a successful integration. Education provides access to resources and opportunities for self, family and community development and growth. Furthermore, the connection between Education and employability is undeniable. Thus, facilitating the access of migrants to Education will positively impact their employment opportunities and their inclusion in host communities.
In this perspective, the International Conference on Education and Migrations aims to create a wide-ranging space for the debate of ideas, concerns, and work methods on the connection between education, migrations and sustainable development.
