Since last March, CTMS has been hosting two online seminar series focused on the issues of migration and inclusion: "Migration and Integration Seminar" and "Creating an Inclusive Society Seminar". The Center has carefully curated an inclusive list of expert guest speakers that tackle a variety of topics centered around pressing challenges.
The first four sessions of the "Migration and Integration Seminar" examined topics such as immigration policy and social inclusion and exclusion of migrants in South Korea. The seminars have attracted a large number of participants, reaching at least 50% of pre-registration numbers. From students and university faculty, to civil society and government agencies, the increasing audience shows strong interest in the challenges of migration.
Moreover, the "Creating an Inclusive Society Seminar" has also managed to allure a broad audience interested in topics such as labor market and demographic change, economic transformation, elderly care and care farming.
Conducted in both Korean and English, the seminars have shown positive engagement, which is expected to keep on increasing as they will continue through December of this year.
