you are welcome 2017/2018

YOU ARE WELCOME is a collaborative project of 13 partner organisations which endeavours to connect new arrivals, third country nationals residing and native citizens. The aim of WELCOME is to deconstruct the process of migrants’ stigmatization, help communities involved overcome stereotypes and develop counter narratives for more accurate perceptions of migrants and refugees stemming in participating countries, especially in the UK, Central Europe and countries along the Balkan-route.

The project is supported by:

Strand 2: Democratic engagement and civic participation 2.2: Network of Towns

YOU ARE WELCOME: European Network for Integration of Refugees at Local Level and Combating Hate Speech
