A public forum to discuss the effects of the proposed immigration laws in the government programme on the rights of diverse migrant groups in Finland.
The event brings together the public and experts, to help understand the implications of the programme, raise awareness of concerns, offer an opportunity for public dialogue, hear the opinions of experts and civil society, and develop a collective action plan on how to address the concerns. It will consist of informative talks and a panel discussion among experts, and an open mic and Q&A session, through which the public can ask questions and share their experiences, concerns, and ideas.
