Social Support and Migration in Scotland Dissemination Event


Our recent Supporting Migrants in Welfare Reform event included data and insights from researchers working on the Social Support and Migration in Scotland (SSAMIS) project. In February, the SSAMIS project will hold two dissemination events (one in Glasgow, one in Aberdeen), at which they will present key themes emerging from their research, combined with opportunities for networking, small group discussion and feedback from participants. They will also launch their interim report.

The SSAMIS project (2013-2017) explores experiences of migration and settlement amongst migrants from Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) living in Scotland. The SSAMIS team has recently completed extensive ethnographic fieldwork in four locations across Scotland, two urban (Aberdeen and Glasgow) and two rural (Aberdeenshire and Angus) which included interviews with over 200 migrants and approximately 60 representatives of local authorities, service providers and migrant associations, as well as observations of key sites.

This event will be of interest to a range of stakeholders and service providers including local authorities, community planning partners, ESOL practitioners, migrant associations etc.

If you are interested in attending, you can register for each event via EventBrite: Glasgow on Thursday 4 Feb and Aberdeen on Wednesday 24 February
