MigrAlp - Center on Migration for Services, Integration and Information

During recent years, the number of migrants in most European countries has increased significantly. Increased migration is not only an enormous challenge for the European Union and its member states, but also for the individual regions, provinces and countries that play an increasingly important role in planning and implementing national immigration policies. As such, a response at the local level more accurately provides for the needs of specific territories in terms of housing, employment, education and health care. Governments, public administrations and civil society are challenged to integrate migrants and persons with migrant backgrounds into society. This integration is hindered by racist and xenophobic incidents, which occur on an almost daily basis.

The MigrAlp project aims to analyze and compare the migration phenomenon in North and South Tyrol. Subsequently, indicators of successful integration at the local level were developed in order to develop recommendations for better integration policies. In parallel, the project develops role playing in the field of anti-discrimination and diversity in order to prepare the youth for a more open society.
