The Lab is a non-profit organisation constituted by INTEGRIM fellows to provide research services to various stakeholders and groups working on migration, integration and social justice.

The Lab advocates for knowledge-driven policy-making and applied research practices and wants to bridge the gap between research, policy-making and practice.

It is currently a partner in the AMIF project MILE.

MILE stands for Migrant Integration through Locally designed Experiences and is about empowering the local community as a whole, including migrant communities. MILE is two-year project co-funded through the European Union’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund and involves partners in six European countries: Belgium, Greece, Latvia, Spain, the Netherlands, and the UK.  (read more:
