As violence increases around the world, so does immigration. Communities – even those with a history of population loss – are confronted with new populations and new challenges. Immigration is impacted by and impacts all aspects of communities: ecological, cultural, human, social, political, financial, political and built. In the webinar we will use the community capitals framework to see how these community capitals can be mobilized to welcome immigrants and integrate them into the community as new assets, respecting new cultures that can diversify and enhance the entire community.
The International Association for Community Development's (IACD) first online seminar will be with Dr. Cornelia Flora - the Emeritus Distinguished Professor at the Department of Sociology, Iowa State University. She will discuss the subject of community capitals and migration, exploring the migration issues in the US and in Europe. The webinar is free to IACD members; non-members are asked to give a small donation: Once you have registered, you will be sent the instructions for joining the webinar.
The International Association for Community Development (IACD) is the only global network of activists, practitioners, researchers and policymakers, working towards social justice through community development approaches. We are a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation with members worldwide.
