Migrant Inclusion Strategies in European Cities

MiStra wants to maximise the impact of effective existing practices at European level on migrants and minorities’ inclusion in cities in need, involving policy makers, VET stakeholders and civil society and migrant communities as key actors. Operational objectives are:

  1. Exploit education and vocational training measures as means to facilitate social inclusion and job placement of migrant people, including marginalized cultural minorities and Roma people.
  2. Facilitate and systematize the further exchanges between local welfare systems.
  3. Mainstream the issues linked to integration, social inclusion and VET quality in cities’ political agendas
  4. Sharing and disseminating knowledge and competences on migrant and minorities’ social inclusion.
  5. Preventing and contrasting racism and marginalisation phenomena at different levels, namely in policy, on the job and in daily life.

The MiStra project bases its action upon a multi-stakeholder methodology, responding to the need of acting at various levels on (1) identifying all relevant information on the actual state of implementation; (2) involving in each stage the appropriate actors in the process of discussing and negotiating policy orientation and relevant practices to share; (3) assuring the initiation of a shared and deep process, taking into account the specific needs of each context; (4) assure the widest visibility of project topics at all levels.

We identified 4 city contexts where interesting integrate approaches are place and 4 different city contexts needing to put in place or reinforce their knowledge and tools. Vienna, Berlin, Bologna and Dublin will guide the transfer, while Taranto, Prague, Vidin and Budapest will act as receiving contexts.
