4x4 Manchester: The Welcoming City

Our Research & Policy Coordinator Dr. Yasmine Nahlawi presented at an event hosted by 4x4 Manchester on 'The Welcoming City' on 24 May. In our presentation, we highlighted that when migrant communities are welcomed into their new home cities, especially during their time of need, they will want to give back to their communities when they are presented the chance. With respect to the Syrian community in Manchester, we mentioned that Syrians have stepped up to give back on several occasions, including through participating in flood prevention efforts in Rochdale in reaction to the floods of December 2015.
