Organized by the Swedish National Heritage Board in collaboration with the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change on 15-16 May 2019, the conference intended to elucidate and complicate the relationships between cultural heritage and migration, with specific consideration of innovative methods within local integration practices, and historical and global contexts. Key questions asked How does migration relate to notions of place, home and borders as heritage? How can migration be understood as a form of cultural heritage? And how can cultural heritage professionals enhance their expertise in relation to migration? Thor Tureby was invited to contribute to group discussions on these and similar themes.
