Solas UNESCO-RILA Annual Lecture: Do You Get My Drift?

With Gameli Tordzro, Tawona Sithole and Naa Denusa Tordzro

We are delighted to welcome back Professor Alison Phipps and the UNESCO-RILA team. This annual lecture mines the contested concept of Integration for its history, variation and substance. It considers the important work of law and social policy in developing frameworks and duties for integration, especially with regard to the work of New Scots Integration Strategy.

With the new focus on languages and arts in the processes in individual and intercultural integration the lecture will work multilingually and artistically, as well as through more traditional forms of research presentation.
