Being an ex-pat is a unique and exciting experience. On the one hand, you get to travel and experience different languages and cultures. It’s a great opportunity to expand your global network, grow your career and have exciting experiences that last a lifetime. The ex-pat experience can also be challenging as you settle into the new country. Juggling administrative responsibilities like registering your new address, getting a driver’s license, or learning about your rights and responsibilities as a resident can be quite taxing. Moreover, the absence of a family support system can add another layer of complexity.

Our March event is dedicated to the Ex-pat experience. During this event, we will share insights on how to integrate yourself in Luxembourg and bring you up to date on policies and news regarding your rights as a resident, including the right to vote in the upcoming local elections. Join our event as our speakers: Luxembourg Minister of Family and Integration Corinne Cahen, Luxembourg City Counsellor Maria Eduarda De Macedo, and LISER Researcher, Natalia Zdanowska, share insightful dialogue on the Ex-pat Experience in Luxembourg.

Natalia Zdanowska

Natalia Zdanowska, originally from Poland, studied and worked in France, Spain and the United Kingdom. She is now a researcher at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research, where she is investigating spatial inequalities in the city of Luxembourg. The project is commissioned by the City of Luxembourg and gives Natalia the opportunity to regularly meet with public policy makers to discuss her findings. Natalia is also looking at spatial inequalities at different scales of a city – that is, between cities within a country, within cities themselves, as a result of firm economic activity and its direct impact on society, such as the rise of populism. Natalia also draws attention to how these inequalities persist over time and how history reproduces spatial divisions in Europe.
