Organised as part of the Good Relations project, co-financed by the European Union Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme (2007-2013) and coordinated by the Finnish Ministry of the Interior, the Good Relations Conference will facilitate European discussion on how xenophobia and other forms of intolerance can be tackled by promoting good relations between people from diverse backgrounds. The conference will bring together actors from all EU Member States - national, regional and local authorities, civil society organisations, and professionals and researchers in the area - who, by promoting good relations, seek to combat xenophobia and other forms of intolerance.
The conference will present the key outcomes of the transnational Good Relations project: a framework document for the measurement of good relations and a practical toolkit for promoting good relations, and provide a platform for an exchange of experiences amongst participants.
There are still places available to attend the conference. Online registration is available at www.prospectum.fi/eventos/smtevents/event/GoodRelations. Registration will close on 25 July 2014.
The travel and accommodation costs of one participant from each EU Member State will be covered by the project. In case there are not participants from every Member State, costs of more than one participant from other Member States can be covered.
Therefore, in the registration form, you will be invited to select one of the three options:
- My organisation / I will cover all my travel and accommodation expenses. I will not apply for refunding of these costs from the Finnish Ministry of the Interior.
- I wish all my travel and accommodation costs to be covered by the Finnish Ministry of the Interior. I have read and agree to abide by the rules regarding the travel expenses.
- My organisation / I will cover part of my travel and accommodation expenses. I will apply for refunding of part of the costs from the Finnish Ministry of the Interior. I have read and agree to abide by the rules regarding the travel expenses. Please, specify (description of expenses, estimated sum):
By selecting the second or the third option, your name will be added to the list of participants whose travel costs will potentially be covered by the project. Confirmation on the reimbursement of travel expenses will be provided as soon as possible, and at the latest by 4 August 2014. You will be allowed to cancel your registration in case the project will not be able to provide you with the reimbursement that you have applied for.
