Continuation of Canadian-German cooperation on refugee issues

Cooperation between LIfBi and Canadian colleagues on refugee issues (see news archive) is being continued thanks to the support of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF). On September 16 and 17, 2016, Dr. Jutta von Maurice and Dr. Roman Auriga attended a two-day meeting in Ottawa, at which specific plans for research and survey activities with regards to refugee issues were discussed.
After a detailed exchange of experiences, spaces for opportunities were examined so that ongoing and planned projects on both sides can be interlinked. LIfBi here on the German side works closely together with several institutes of the Leibniz Education Research Network (LERN), which were also represented at the workshop in Ottawa.
