Short description:

The purpose of this conference was to exchange learning and best practice examples with practitioners involved in the care of unaccompanied minors, and support both UK regional and European networking opportunities for attending delegates.

The conference was held over two days with an opening session on the evening of the 17th for the non-UK delegation and a full day conference on the 18th with both non-UK  and UK delegates Delegates came from a variety of professions including local government/municipality officers, social workers, non-government organisations, politicians, central government agencies, education and health. 

Overall the East of England SMP consider this event to be a success. Feedback (formal and informal) has all been very positive with all participants rating the event as “excellent” or “good”. Regionally, we have seen practitioners in the field looking at their own practices and comparing these to practices in other EU member states. It has promoted opportunities for wider thinking and creating solutions. For example, UK practitioners have since fed back that they did not previously feel politically engaged in their work, however, since attending the conference; they report a better understanding of how political decisions are made and how this influences their work.

Short description:

The conference was a summing up of the conference with a corona twist. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a worldwide increase in morbidity and mortality. Despite the widely adopted message that the virus ‘does not discriminate’, preliminary evidence suggests that the interaction between COVID-19 and the social environment does, pointing to higher morbidity and mortality among low socioeconomic status and minority groups in some countries. During this talk professor Rostila will show empirical evidence on disparities in COVID-19 morbidity and mortality in Sweden and show whether migrants lower socioeconomic status and disadvantaged living conditions contributes to such disparities.
