CEMyRI presents the INTER4REF project in the International Day of the Refugee

The Centre for Migrations Studies and Intercultural Relations (CEMyRI) in collaboration with Cruz Roja and Fundación CEPAIM organises a day of reflection on the International Day of the Refugee on Friday 7th of June 2019 in the Aula Magna of the Humanities Building C in the University of Almería.

The aim of the activity is to create a space of reflection with experts, technicians from the asylum and refuge programme and students through different activities, such as: a talk “International Protection in Spain: a panoramic perspective”, presented by Begoña Santos Olmeda (asylum and migrations expert), the testimony of the Congolese refugee Candy Ndayay Keengamy and a workshop “Analysis of the Reception system in International Protection: different perspectives”. In the workshop there will be two different work groups, one aimed for students and non experts, in which they will get in touch with the issues regarding who are the refugees and their profiles, what is the asylum programme about, improvements, etc; the second group, aimed for technicians and experts of the Refugee Programme, will reflect on the actual Spanish refugee programme from a SWOT.

On another note, the meeting will have a space to present the ‘Official Master in Migration, Cultural Mediation and Vulnerable Groups’ available in UAL in the next course 2019/2020. This will be followed by the presentation of the INTER4REF Project: Interpreters for Refugees, a project led by the National Centre for Social Research (EKKE), in which CEMyRI participates as a partner. The aim of the project is to develop free learning materials and a MOOC course for those who want to interpret and work with refugees.
