To foster knowledge and contribute examples of good practice for the enhancement of existing relocation programmes, one field of MRI´s activity is dedicated to accompanying research and international networking with other programmes. The results are published and discussed at events that aim to stimulate expert dialogue and exchange between researchers and the global community of practice.
On 9 September 2021 MRI invited its network for the online event "Artistic Freedom & Mobility: Learnings from the Pandemic". Please find the detailed event programme here.
We are currently calling for proposals for the research project "Towards a fairer and more anti-discriminatory support for international relocation in North-South contexts".
