H2020 Investing in ‘Welcoming Spaces’ in Europe: revitalizing shrinking areas by hosting non-EU migrants (WelcomingSpaces)
Many villages or towns in the EU Member States are in decline due to a wide range of reasons. Newly arrived migrants and refugees can play an important role in revitalising shrinking areas of the EU through their successful integration. The EU-funded WelcomingSpaces project will direct research towards two goals: ways of contributing to the revitalisation of shrinking areas through the successful integration of non-EU migrants, and new forms of government-citizen-migrant interaction.
H2020 Empowerment through liquid Integration of Migrant Youth in vulnerable conditions (MIMY)
Successful integration will make migration an opportunity for both third-country nationals and host societies. If well integrated, migrants can contribute to making Europe a more prosperous, cohesive, and inclusive society. The EU-funded MIMY project will research which integration strategies and policies can better support the empowerment of young vulnerable migrants to become active citizens within an inclusive society.
