Presentation of the main findings of the "European Migrant Integration Academy" (EU-MIA)

The EU-MIA project aims at establishing connections between researchers, practitioners and institutions to encourage innovative city-to-city cooperation on migrant integration at the European level.

Following the European Migrant Integration Academy (EU-MIA), which took place in February 2014 at the International Training Centre of the ILO in Turin, a seminar will be organized on 7 May 2014 in Brussels to present the EU-MIA research findings

The seminar will present the concrete results of the project as well as give the floor to stakeholders that the EU-MIA team met throughout the duration of the project. This event will also serve as a catalyst to diffuse and encourage innovative city-to-city cooperation at the European level.

Officials from local institutions dealing with social integration of migrant communities, as well as practitioners, researchers and representatives of associations and NGOs dealing with local integration are invited to join the workshop by registering on line.

The specific objectives of the seminar are:

  • To present EU-MIA’s outcomes and the conclusions of the field research that was conducted by the project experts and stakeholders (10 ‘functioning practices’)
  • To present and distribute the EU-MIA informative toolbox that has been developed in order to enhance the dissemination of innovative practices
  • To share experiences through the testimony of participants who attended the Academy and their presentation of innovative project proposal which were designed during EU-MIA
  • Exchanging views and reflecting within a panel of discussion about innovative city-to-city cooperation on migrant integration
Thanks to the kind cooperation of the Committee of the Regions, the seminar will take place at its offices, Bâtiment Jacques Delors, Rue Belliard 99-101, Brussels.
