Location: Hörsaal 6A P (Neues Institutsgebäude (NIG))
RC46 Clinical Sociology (host committee)

Language: English and French

Migrations, in all countries, international immigration or internal migrations inside a country constitute a major social phenomenon. In the cities, at school, in the workplace, in health services, in the political public sphere, diversity is the word. How can we build a society based on an inclusive social democracy, a true citizenship that addresses the dialectical tension between universal rights and duties and “otherness”, the basic differences expressed through languages, values, beliefs, life habits, gender relationships? Presentations are welcome on all kinds of cultural diversity and immigration/migration issues.
