(22 April 2019) – With the coLAB project, four higher education institutions – Université Clermont Auvergne, IHECS, the London College of Communication, and Libera Università Maria Ss. Assunta – have found an original way to contribute to the integration of refugees into society.
At Université Clermont Auvergne, five refugees participated in the coLAB project by providing lectures and tutorials on various themes corresponding to their expertise: marketing, communication strategies, intercultural communication, civilisation, etc.
And the first results obtained reveal that the coLAB project has participated in a form of pluralistic integration, which has fostered the openness and curiosity of the students who have taken part in the scheme.
Secondly, by providing access to higher education for refugees and promoting their knowledge, the coLAB project has contributed to better integration into society. (The Conversation)
