Welcome Aboard: Immigration and the Role of Trust, Integration and Social Cohesion in Building Communities
Friday, June 23, 3:30-5 p.m.
Emera Innovation Exchange, Signal Hill Campus
The need to increase immigration is regularly put forward as a solution to declining population and labour marketing challenges, but the addition of new community members can also bring community change and open the doors to rascism and conscious and unconscious biases. In an increasingly polarized society, what role does trust, social cohesion and integration play in building and maintaining inclusive communities. Join the Harris Centre, in partnership with the Department of Political Science (Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences) for a panel discussion with Dr. Keith Banting, Dr. Nils Holtug, Dr. Zainab Jerrett (PhD’98), Ukrainian pianist Alla Melnychuk, Dr. Folake Oluakun, and Constanza Safatle (Newbornlander).
