Engaged Students for Inclusive Cities

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganising and contributing to an eventProfessional


This international workshop was organized to promote an interorganizational dialogue about engaged researching. The participants varied from student-researchers and senior researchers of the Erasmus University of Rotterdam (EUR) and the University of Liège (ULiège), to representatives of the Rotterdam municipality and antidiscrimination agency RADAR. The EUR and ULiège both collaborate with UNIC4ER in engaging state and civil society actors with research. Both universities encourage master students to do their research projects in and about their cities, with a common goal of addressing migration and diversity governance issues through close collaboration with societal partners.

During the workshop the opportunities and difficulties that lie in the mutual cooperation between municipality, social organizations and universities we discussed. Close listening and co-creation have proven itself to be of key importance in effective interorganizational collaboration. This way, policy can be based on local and academic knowledge which fit with the needs of broader society.
