A Discussion with Politicians in France

On Saturday, 9 July, Researcher Vincent Ferry organized a discussion with politicians in Lorraine, France. He presented the EUMARGINS research results based on several themes: employment, education and qualifications, identity, participation, perceptions of their neighbourhood and so forth. Following the discussion, a debate emerged among the politicians producing a selection of policy suggestions that would be brought back to the political parties they represent.

The independent filmmaker, Arnaud Codazzi, filmed the debate: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xlxyu9_eumargins-jeunes-de-banlieue-issus-de-l-immigration_news

For the dissemination of policy recommendations the policy workshops will be organised in each participating country. Policy workshops will aim at presenting the results of the research carried out in each country and transnationally and presenting policy recommendations, as well as discussing the results and recommendations with politicians and stakeholders of each country. The target group of policy workshops will be local/national politicians and stakeholders (community leaders, NGO representatives).
