During the past 3.5 years, the EU-funded project FOCUS has explored acceptance and reality of two–way dynamic integration which the EU has defined as its objective.

The FOCUS Final Conference – Living Well Together on 1-2 June 2022 will showcase the FOCUS results: findings from qualitative and quantitative research, the FOCUS Approach to Dynamic Integration, and the FOCUS Implementation Guidance.

It will take stock of the past decade of dynamic integration and discuss with other integration practitioners from civil society, academia and policy how the FOCUS results can be implemented in practice – also in the current context of increased migration from Ukraine.

The conference takes place at La Tricoterie, a unique event and cultural venue in the heart of Brussels (near Gare du Midi).
