Feedback by Katérina Stenou (Director of the UNESCO Division of Cultural Policies and Intercultural Dialogue):

"Thank you very much for this very stimulating conference! I was very happy to be with the real cultural actors and to learn more about new challenges and aspirations concerning the complex field of migration and its linkages with music as possible vector of mutual understanding and appreciation."
