The focus of this conference is to identify positive actions which promote effective integration and inclusion. It aims to create a space for informed debate and to be solutions focused, incorporating information on approaches which have been effective in other countries and tying this firmly to the current environment in Ireland. This will help illuminate the path ahead and help us to make decisions which promote positive integration.
