 This video showcases the second panel session of this launch event.

Crimmigration versus Integration: People’s Lives, People’s Voices: What are the consequences of creating a 'hostile environment' and processes which criminalise migrants? Are there creative ways to engage with and integrate ‘strangers’?

Professor Ben Bowling, Professor of Criminology & Criminal Justice at King’s College London, and Professor Alison Phipps, UNESCO Chair UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration Through Languages and the Arts at the University of Glasgow challenged us to reflect critically on the criminalisation of migrant communities and to shift our thinking by listening to migrant voices. This event also included Dr Gameli Tordzro, who performed music and sang as a representation of migrant voices.
