Short description of the seminars
Both two seminars had two main sessions; the first session was meant to give the Babeș-Bolyai team the opportunity to present to those invited the general and main aspects of the project. The coordinator of the team, Mr Dan Chiribuca presented the main aspects of the project while the other two members of the team presented a short description of the Country report, the Context Analysis and the Data analysis; the second session had the purpose to present the two brochures, for adults and children, and give the audience the opportunity to develop free discussions about topics like multilingualism, migratory profiles in Romania and Europe, and main issues that the immigrant / emigrant communities are forced to deal with in the context of globalization.
