CELL's Principal Participates in Brussels Policy Workshop

On 16 October 2017, CELL's Principal Ayla Bonfiglio participated in the Policy Workshop on the Future of Migration in Europe, organized by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in Brussels. At the workshop, Ayla co-facilitated a lab session on The Effects and Effectiveness of Migration Policies: EU and Member State Policies. Research and policy-making on migration, particularly related to refugees and asylum seekers, are important to CELL's work because of the challenges migrants and refugees often experience related to integration and xenophobia, and because of the divisive stereotypes they may have encountered related to the conflicts that they have fled.
