Focus Integration


The Focus Integration project endeavored to identify the initiatives and contributions of migrants’ self-help organizations in promoting their integration to their adapted country.


Based on this identification and a conference held among practitioners and migrants themselves, the project has put forward recommendations to strengthen the participation of self-help organizations in integration of migrants. Focus Integration has focused on the role of self-organizations of migrants as a means of promising approaches for integration and capacity building.
