New opportunities for stakeholder cooperation within the UnionMigrantNet project in Sofia

On September 25, 2020, Sofia Development Association took part in the concluding conference of the ARTEM initiative, on the invitation of the Bulgarian coordinator CATRO Bulgaria. The conference gathered representatives of NGOs, volunteers, the state Employment Agency, the State Agency for Refugees, UNHCR, and others to discuss new opportunities for the integration of refugees and third-country nationals in the social and economic life in the country. Through the opportunity to present the UMN project and to strengthen the partnership with local stakeholders, the UMN partners in Sofia – SDA and the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria (CITUB) – hope to achieve greater impact and to improve the capacity of public institutions, employers, and social partners to integrate third-country nationals in the economic and social life in the country.

Co-funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund of the European Union
