Welcome address from the ENSEC board

As an International network ENSEC draws together members from a diversity of cultures, geographically, linguistically, and of course professionally. In a world of increasing global mobility, both through choice and through necessity, one of the professional challenges we all share is developing good practice with children, young people, students and
colleagues from diverse backgrounds, and this year we have chosen to make this our focus.

We expect that the 6th ENSEC Conference will provide a valuable opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss and disseminate their work. Delegates and previous participants will have the chance to find old friends from the previous conferences and make new friends, and additionally the occasion to visit both Stockholm and Helsinki in the first ENSEC Conference to be held at sea!"
