Ruotsin kansallisen EMN-konferenssin antia - teemana kansainväliset opiskelijat


Ruotsin EMN-yhteyspiste järjesti 18.4 oman kansallisen EMN-konferenssinsa, jonka teemana oli "Entry and Stay of International Students". Konferenssin teema juontuu tämän vuoden laajasta EMN-teematutkimuksesta "Immigration of International Students to the EU" joten ajankohtaisuus oli taattu. Konferenssissa kuultiin esitelmiä, jossa opiskelijateemaa lähestyttiin monesta eri kulmasta, mm. yliopistotahoilta, opiskelijatahoilta sekä viranomaistahoilta katsottuna. Keskustelua herätti mm. Ruotsin kolmansista maista tuleville kansainvälisille opiskelijoille asettamat lukukausimaksut, jotka ovat pääsyy siihen että kv-opiskelijoiden määrä Ruotsissa on vähentynyt. Suomen EMN-yhteyspiste osallistui konferenssiin ja tulosalueen johtaja Riikka Asa on kirjannut muutamia huomioita, jotka ovat luettavissa täältä.

Seminaarissa pidetyt esitykset sekä ruotsinkielinen yhteenveto löytyvät Ruotsin EMN-verkkosivuilta.
