"Conferences at such levels are usually held in Moscow and St.
Petersburg, where the whole research and development institutes undertake studies related to the refugees and migrants issues. Of course, Russia cannot be compared with Belarus, when it comes to the scale, but that doesn't mean that such concerns and challenges are not relevant for Belarus. And it is very pleasing that the ﬁrst robin in this matter was Human Constanta, which specializes in the ﬁeld for a number of years. I believe that this conference (to which even international speakers were
invited) became the outcome of their activity. The only disappointing thing is, why no one else is concerned about the problems of refugees and migrants? After all, they're here with us! Migrants, and problems, and hate speech. Anyone who has ever crossed the border can recall some unexpected challenges they had to deal with both at the border
and in a foreign country. And what about people who are forced to escape from their place of habitual residence and for whom integration, acculturation, and adaptation are way more difﬁcult? That's the thing we have to speak about, as well as look into it and organize events for both the population and the ofﬁcials".
