How can design help cities and refugees adapt to each other?
Since few people in host communities actually know refugees, most opinions of refugees are shaped by the media, rather than through first-hand contact or personal stories. The repercussions for the integration of refugees in European society are huge. A limited or distorted understanding, by Europeans and refugees alike, of the values important in each other’s cultures can form barriers to acceptance and integration. So how can
we create better connections between cultures? How can we help refugees reach their full potential? What can we learn from them?
