2014 will mark the 10 years anniversary for bon. We asked Eric Corijn, Brussels specialist and professor emeritus in social and cultural geography at the VUB, what to take from 10 years of integration in Brussels and what to expect for the next 10 years.
At 8 different times, bon will start up several social orientation courses in different languages in 2014.
