The Danish School of Education of the Aarhus University, is organising, between 13-15 December 2021, the Keystone Conference, as part of the European Universities – Critical Futures project. EUA will be present during the event for a roundtable on refugee access to higher education.
The European Universities – Critical Futures project gathered, for the last three years, a network of European scholars engaging in working groups to address different aspects of the question, What are the future roles of universities in creating social and regional integration in Europe, in a shifting global context? Now, the aim of this conference is to share existing knowledge and to develop agendas for further critical research. Besides this, the conference will also conclude with a plan for an extended dialogue with decision makers in the project’s final year.
The programme will feature the work of six working groups and the results of a ten-country comparative study of the short-term and long-term impacts of the pandemic on European higher education.
The conference is open to both senior and early-stage researchers. It will take place at The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, in Denmark, but there are also some possibilities for minimal online participation. For more details and registration, please visit the event’s website.
