Presentation of the project Integration Policies: Who Benefits? MIPEX 2015 results in Brussels

30 June will mark the publication of the full results of the project “Integration policies: Who benefits?” coordinated by CIDOB and MPG and co-funded by the EU Fund for the Integration of Third-Country Nationals. On that day, the website www.mipex.eu will publish the international press release, full data and reports on 38 countries (28 EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey, Japan, Korea, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and United States).


For two months, national debates have been organised with stakeholders on the strengths, needs and impacts of integration policies in nearly all EU countries, Canada and United States. The results and debates use the EU ‘Zaragoza’ Integration Indicators to understand the needs and outcomes to monitor on a wide range of integration policies, specifically for vulnerable groups of non-EU citizens: women, youth, families, the low-educated, the sick, refugees, temporary residents, victims of discrimination and the disenfranchised.

The final Brussels event shares the results of these national reflections and asks what the European institutions can do concretely to improve integration in practice through European law, enforcement, recommendations, funding and transfer of best practice. This event focuses on both areas of strength and areas of weakness for integration policymaking at European level. European-wide recommendations will be presented and debated by participants.
