Purpose

Why does this SIG exist?
The purpose of this group is to –
  • Gather knowledge on the topic of Migration as it relates to Interculturalism and Interculturalists
  • Disseminate knowledge gained both to members of the SIG and SIETAR members
  • Create a network to provide mentoring and support for members working in the field.
  • Raise awareness inside and outside SIETAR of the Role Interculturalists can play in migration issues.
