As one of Europe’s most international universities, diversity is a crucial part of who we are. The new Finnish government’s proposed changes to immigration policy and what they mean for the international community have caused concern in our community. How does the future of international experts in Finland look like? How welcomed will the international community feel?
During the autumn, we have had a regular dialogue within our international community and external stakeholders. We will now continue the discussion by providing Aaltonians – personnel and students – and their spouses an opportunity to have an open dialogue with Ilkka Haahtela, Director General, Finnish Immigration Service (Migri), and Teemu Haapalehto, Director of Immigration Affairs, City of Espoo. From Aalto leadership, Provost Kristiina Mäkelä, Communications Director Laura Aalto and Chief Human Resources Officer Riitta Silvennoinen will also participate.
Networking at 16.45, the event starts at 17.00.
