The Open University and Oxford University are working in collaboration to hold a free interactive workshop to address the brokering role of refugee and migrant front-line staff in the migration third sector. It proposes a platform for exchange on the potential innovations as well as challenges that emerge when the identities and experiences of front-line staff in the migration third sector overlap with that of service users.
The purpose of the workshop is to create a space for different stakeholders to reflect on obstacles and opportunities around the status of migrant staff’s experiential knowledge within third sector organisations. We would like to invite a range of stakeholders to the workshop that have experience of the front-line in migrant third sector organisations, including, paid and unpaid roles, case workers and managers. In particular, we welcome asylum seekers and refugees working/volunteering in front- line roles, wishing to attend and share their experiences.
The workshop will be facilitated by the research team, Dr. Vita Terry, Jacqueline Broadhead and Dr. Sara de Jong, who each have practical experience as well as research expertise in migration and the third sector. Through a mixture of different interactive activities we will encourage dialogue and debate.
