Dear friends, It’s been a year since camp Heumensoord opened and our community was born; a year full of uncertainties, struggle and frustrations, but also of togetherness, teamwork and action.

‘Postcolonial Europe’ from our borderlands // mind map exhibition March 2016
Heumensoord: One year later. A lot of activities have taken place. Time for a knowledge exchange.
It’s organized by “the research hotspot GLOCAL“. This is a research initiative about fields of conflict, borders and development. It focuses on “transnational dimensions of ‘local’ problems related to socio-economic inequalities, (geo)political conflicts over resources”.
Sounds pretty academic- however, the talk is supposed to be a real sharing of experiences.
Apart form us, there will be:
- Yannick: refugee, has lived on both the Dutch and German side of the border
- Dieter Schalk: case manager at COA Nijmegen and Arnhem
- Friedhelm Kahm: volunteer at Rundertisch, a citizen initiative supporting refugees in Kranenburg.
- Huda Degu, who will moderate the conversation: part of University Asylum (Nijmegen Centre for Border Research).
There is also interaction planned with the audience. So, come, attend and bring in your experiences!
More info from the invite text via GLOCAL:
Not long after the refugee centre in Heumensoord was shut down, a new centre was created in Kranenburg, only 12 km’s away on the other side of the border. While the admittance of refugees is an ongoing source of public and academic debate, little attention has been paid to the possibilities for cross-border cooperation.
During this event, we will reflect on the admittance of refugees in our cross-border region and discuss the main challenges and chances. What went well? What went wrong? How can we learn from each other? In what ways can we benefit from cross-border cooperation?
The speakers are involved in these topics in very different ways and will share their personal experiences. There will also be room for the public to join the conversation. We will conclude with drinks and snacks prepared by our moderator and the refugee women group Inasako.
See you there!
