Introduction: (1) concepts: globalization and glocalization; "migrant"; arrival city; capital (human, social, cultural, spiritual), and (2) short overview: migrations to Low Countries and current refugee flows. The introduction is followed by a presentation of Molenbeek in Brussels. The presentation will be framed by the developed concepts and the short overview of migrations and refugee flows. If there is enough time, attention will be given to 2 recent and current challenges: jihadism and the management of multiple loyalties.

 

Lecturer: Johan Leman (Faculty of Social Sciences, KULeuven and director of Foyer Molenbeek)
