New Neighbours Premiere

Integration, (in)tolerance and multi-culturalism are the daily challenges faced by the migrants who recently arrived in Europe and by those who discover them as their New Neighbours.  How will they be integrated? Will both sides face - and possibly solve - the ethnic, religious and ethical dilemmas they face?

The project is co-financed by the European Commission and coordinated by the EBU, in cooperation with MDI, COMMIT, CMFE and COSPE ; it aims to better help the integration of migrants in their host communities. 9 EBU members took part in this series, the co-production of which is supervised by the EBU Intercultural and Diversity Group.

On the occasion of World TV Day, focused this year on Diversity, the EBU is organizing the premiere of two of the documentaries at BOZAR, upon invitation, and access will also be open to the public.
