Peipsi CTC in cooperation with Tartu University Department of Folklore organized series of seminars aiming to give deeper knowledge on tendencies of migration and asylum-seeking in Europe. In addition to theoretical knowledge and debates practical workshops were conducted how to do fieldwork in sensitive communities and make videos.
