The SIRIUS project has joined forces with the leading European think tank, CEPS, to organise an event that aims to begin the process of transforming the discourse on the labour market integration of migrant and refugees. The event will hosted by the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), in Brussels on the 4th December 2019 and will feature SIRIUS project coordinator Professor Simone Baglioni.
The event, titled: ‘Reversing the trend and recognising potential: Towards more evidence-based policies on the intergration of migrants and refugees in the EU’, will bring together different actors including policymakers, trade unions, employer organisations, civil society organisations and academics to move us beyond discussion and debate regarding ‘border management and security’ to a position at the intersection of integration, entrepreneurship and innovation. The event will seek to develop this dialogue at a higher level of policymaking; in other words from a European viewpoint, rather than at the national level and in doing so brings together speakers from the European Commission, the International Organization for Migration, the European Trade Union Congress and the European Parliament.
The event will therefore be a opportunity to share experiences and visions, and discuss how a coordinated and best practice-based integration strategy could unleash the potential benefits of migrants and refugees for our societies and economies rather than their arrival being used as a tool for political division.

The symposium will take place at GCU London on Monday 21st October 2019, and will bring together different disciplinary perspectives on plurality in public values in relation to health priority setting. Through a series of papers from different perspectives, presented by authors and discussants, we will explore plurality and public values in health priority setting in relation to fundamentals and theories, empirical frameworks and research applications.

How do you put a price on health? That is a question Professor Helen Mason will attempt to answer during her inaugural professorial lecture.
A Professor of Health Economics at the Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health, Helen works primarily in the area of economic evaluation, focusing on the development and application of practices to measure the benefits of healthcare. She gathers the views and values of both patients and the public on healthcare resource allocation.
She said: “In all healthcare systems, decisions have to be made about how to best allocate scarce resources, including funding, staff and equipment, to improve health.
“Decisions about the allocation of these resources should be informed by the value for money that they provide, but how do we know the value of health?”
This lecture will appeal to anyone with an interest in healthcare provision, including members of the public, clinicians and those working in healthcare decision making.
Register for the event on Tuesday, 12th February at 5.30pm, Glasgow Caledonian University.
