Experts from Sofia, Prague (Czech Republic), Osijek (Croatia), Kosice (Slovakia) and Italy gathered together for a partnership meeting in Rubano, Italy, from May 30 to June 1st, 2018.
The participants conducted a pilot city tour with checklists and photovoice in Rubano and neighbouring Padua to assess the policies and practices of integration of third country nationals and migrants, to identify good practices and challenges.
The project team was joined by representatives of the local stakeholder integration groups – people from local government and NGOs working in the area of integration. The stakeholder integration groups in the five countries formed a common expert network for exchange of experiences and interaction.
The partnership meeting is part of the INTEGRA project, lead by Sofia Development Association and co-financed by EC’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund.
