Upplýsingar um Viðburð

On the 27th of January 2023, the Vigdís International Centre hosts a workshop for discussing state-of-the-art research on recent migrations and diversity issues in Iceland. Participants are researchers working with immigrant and refugee communities who will engage in an interdisciplinary dialogue on issues such as design, outcomes, and impact of academic endeavours, as well as methodological challenges and engaged research.

The event is organised as part of the project RomIs: History and Ethnography of Roma in Iceland project supported by the Icelandic Research Fund (RANNÍS). The RomIs project has two overarching goals – to provide the first-ever comprehensive historical account of Romani presence in Iceland and to look ethnographically into the contemporary Roma community in Iceland considering the perspective of Roma as part of Icelandic society.
