Nowadays, migration and asylum seekers represent a great challenge for the whole Europe. Migrants’ integration and refugees’ flow have become a topic of a constant debate across Europe. The new debate is now how to promote integration approaches, policies, theory and practices. Civil coexistence and mutual respect have to be built through educational and welfare interventions also in the labour field. Integration processes often result in xenophobic attitudes. According to this, learning has become the only way of migrants to defend themselves against prejudices and stereotypes.
The MigrEmpower project contributes to the fight against discrimination towards migrants and/or refugees by asking for the recognition of their citizenship rights; promoting the coexistence among society and migrants and/or refugees’ communities; considering educational and training as indispensable elements for the promotion of social cohesion and integration processes.
The 8 entities from 6 EU countries (Spain, Italy, Germany, Cyprus, Austria and France) involved in this project, will achieve the project objectives by carrying out the study on policies and good practices addressed to migrants and refugees' social and labour integration, in order to analyse what has been already implemented and how to learn from past experiences; developing methodological and intervention tools and didactic materials for promoting migrants and refugees’ social and labour situation; testing the intervention tools, guidelines and training materials.
