Recent research highlights a number of key challenges facing new immigrants in host countries that initiatives to date have failed to overcome. There is a significant information gap as migrants experience a lack of knowledge where to go to access information, education and training supports and basic services. There is also a network gap where, although migrant organisations may help to build networks within migrant communities, they do little to tie these organisations to groups outside of the migrant communities.
Considering these challenges, there is a real opportunity to empower migrant women to become local leaders of integration through the design and delivery of appropriate training materials and supports.
INTEGR8 project partners regard these activities as the critical first steps to a more inclusive and equal Europe for all.
The INTEGR8 project commenced in December 2016 and will run until November 2018.
