An Interparliamentary Committee Meeting on the European Agenda on Migration took place on 24 January in Brussels that discussed legal avenues and integration issues.
The event was organised by the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and was attended by MEPs and representatives from national parliaments.
The Agency presented key findings and opinions from its recent work on integration and discrimination. The findings reveal a strong sense of belonging and sharing of core EU values among immigrants despite shortcomings in integration policies. This contradicts current negative stereotypes. They also reveal a window of opportunity to build on the positve potential of migrants and their descendants promoting their integration through participation, and tackling marginalistion as well as radicalisation.
