On 9th October 2013, two simultaneous Thematic Workshops took place in The Lobby of The Hague on segregation and on transitions. These events were chaired by Guido Walraven and Sabine Severiens respectively and around 40 education and migration professionals participated in them. These were the first two Thematic Workshops organised by the SIRIUS network and it was a great opportunity to share knowledge and experiences between policymakers, researchers and practitioners from all over Europe.
These two events took place the day before the fourth SIRIUS General Meeting, and some partners of the network attended them. The next Thematic Workshop will take place in Vilnius between 21st and 23rd November 2013. The main topic will be the programmes of language support and the event will be organised by two SIRIUS partners, Public Policy and Management Institute and the Ministry of Education and Science of Lithuania.
