The Dutch Young Academy, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Global Young Academy hosted a two-day workshop of 20 academic experts and practitioners drawn from different disciplines and from over 10 countries across three continents. The participants endeavoured to provide a fresh and innovative perspective on the refugee crisis, focusing in particular on societal integration. They identified gaps in current understanding, and explored how research and policy communities might work together more effectively to address this complex, politically charged and highly emotive issue. The aim was to develop a vision document that is based on the latest evidence, to provide policy makers and committed citizens with information and potential approaches to address various aspects of the current refugee crisis.

Members of the Chair of Spatial Planning & Strategy participated in the workshop.
