Interregional cooperation network looks at how to contribute to the migration debate

The Agency presented findings of its upcoming publication ‘Together in the EU’ about the integration policies as tools for more inclusive and cohesive societies that encourage the active participation of migrants and their descendants at a workshop in Brussels on 1 February.

The workshop was part of the EU’s Interreg programme for interregional cooperation and looked at how the programme can do to address the current migration situation and the integration of migrants and refugees. The Agency focused on the challenges in protecting the rights of children and unaccompanied minors and the reception of refugees.

In the discussions, there was growing awareness of the need for a wider migrant integration approach that encompasses active participation in society and stronger intergroup and community relations.
