Rogaška Slatina, Slovenia
The Association EPEKA, Soc. Ent., will be represented by Štefan Simončič, President, at the International Conference Knowledge for My Dreams, The Path to Ethical Education – Good Practices in the Education of Refugees and Migrants.
We will listen to a range of panels touching on the impact of changing social, political, economic and environmental changes on migration (focus on the situation in the Middle East – EU in the light of the refugee crisis). We will examine the reasons for the increase in migration as a global phenomenon; the importance of the geopolitical and security situation in Europe, Asia
and Africa; and the EU’s relationship to the Middle East in the context of migration flows. We will also look at the wide range of implications that migration brings: impacts on education systems and international aid, the migrant experience in host countries and a critical approach to sources that shape public opinion.
