With three experts from research and practice, we will discuss the role of mental well-being and social cohesion for the integration of arriving and receiving communities, moving beyond the overstretched trauma and vulnerability framework and providing concepts and insights to support a community-development approach:
- How can the basic concept of bonds, bridges and links be built in everyday integration practice?
- What are the practical implications of these and other overarching concepts, such as empowerment, social connections or xenophobia, for integration work?
- How can these ideas contribute to activating both arriving and receiving communities?
