225Välkommen till Sverige - Migration & asylum in Sweden a Nordic Horizons event with Mikael Ribbenvik, Acting Director of the Swedish Migration Agency

With Mikael Ribbenvik, Acting Director of the Swedish Migration Agency. In 2015 more than 163,000 asylum seekers arrived in Sweden, more per capita than in any other European country, including Germany. The sharp increase in the number of people fleeing Syria and other war-torn countries was labeled a 'migrant crisis' in Europe. How did Sweden deal with the issue? What lessons can be learned? Even before the recent Syrian crisis Sweden was already one of Europe’s most welcoming countries to refugees. But the country has found it dificult to integrate newcomers and find jobs for refugees and asylum seekers with little grasp of the Swedish language. Mikael Ribbenvik, Acting Director of the Swedish Migration Agency, explains why Sweden has become the Nordic nation with the most open attitude to migrants and refugees and shares his experience in managing the recent surge in migration applications.

Act As If We Own The Place campaign launch.

643Our Democracy Act As If We Own The Place campaign launch.

Our Democracy - Act As If We Own The Place is a coalition of organisations, campaigners and politicians who are dedicated to improving our local democracy. The campaign arises from a simple idea: that human beings flourish when they have control over their own lives. We think communities can redesign their local democracy to work better for them, thriving all the more by taking control of their community’s future. To celebrate the launch of the camapign, join us for a public discussion on renewing local democracy featuring: LESLEY RIDDOCH, author of Blossom: What Scotland needs to flourish ROBIN MCALPINE, director of think-tank Common Weal GEHAN MACLEOD, co-founder of GalGael Trust and former resident of Pollok Free State WILLIE SULLIVAN, director of the Electoral Reform Society Scotland At the moment most of us have things done to us; power exercised over us by the government, by the council, or by companies who don’t work with our community interests at their core. This disempowers and patronises us. If democracy is about anything it is about us running our own affairs. That is why we are asking you to ‘act as if you own the place’ - if the citizens of a village, town, city or country don’t own it, then who does? At the launch we will announce a series of Scotland-wide events where local people can gather together to talk about how they want to run that local place. More information about this will be available shortly. There has never been a more exciting time to get involved in the campaign for a better local democracy. Moreover, there has never been a time when it has been more needed. Our democracy isn’t working in the way it should. To renew and extend the control we have in our communities, it needs a shot in the arm from you and your friends and networks. The event is free but so we have an idea of numbers, please reserve tickets using the ticketing link. Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/283940438668537/

What changed for former Labour spin doctor, Simon Pia, to come out in favour of a Yes vote? In our series of talks from previously high profile 'no' voters we are delighted to have Simon come to the hub to speak on matters close to his heart. The former journalist and now media commentator has been frank in hos ascertions about Scottish politics, the Labour party and the best path for Scotland. If we are to win #indyref2 we must engage with the NO voters who are curious and swithering. A point of difference this time around will be to hear from those who have changed opinion since 2014. Please encourage curoius Yes to come along.
