Strengthen capacity to better integrate migrants and refugees
The Commission has supported Austria, Belgium, Greece, Italy and Portugal in strengthening the institutional and operational capacity to provide integration services to migrants and refugees. Specifically, the following activities have been implemented:
- Review of the services provided by the National Centres for Migrant Integration in Portugal to improve service provision;
- Support the design and implementation of key measures of the Italian national integration plan for refugees;
- Strengthen coordination and the sharing of practices among the actors involved in youth work and integration in Austria.
This technical support is strengthening integration systems for migrants and refugees at national and local levels, with a view to supporting their integration in labour markets and society.
