What are the causes and nature of current migration processes? How can migration flows be managed and influenced? How can societies maintain social cohesion and societal viability? How can scientists, policy makers and practitioners in the field exchange knowledge and experience? Answering these kind of questions is what catalysed IMISCOE’s establishment and what continues to compel the Network’s raison d’être.

 Highly Skilled Migration

The project “Integration of Highly Skilled Third Country Nationals in Europe: A New Proposal for Circular Talent Management” has been approved under the European Integration Fund, call for proposal 2010. Its main aim is to define integration processes adapted to different high skilled immigration patterns and the socio-economical needs of European countries, on the basis of a multidisciplinary discussion/thinking on the relation among admission policies, integration of highly skilled third country nationals in EU countries and circular talent management.

Bridge it thematic network

Increasing migrations into the EU raise the question of the potential of ICTs for promoting the integration of migrants and cultural diversity in Europe. The participation of immigrants and ethnic minorities (henceforth IEM) in the information society is in fact one of the explicit goals set by the Riga Ministerial declaration on digital inclusion, in order to increase their possibilities for integration and social inclusion, creativity and economic participation.

Pioneer initiatives have already been started throughout Europe over the last few years, but they are usually isolated, still poorly known and do not often involve stakeholders that might be interested in them and might contribute to their development. Therefore, there is a need for a “bridging” thematic network.

Online Community on Migration and Integration– Building Inclusive Societies (IBIS)

Reinforcing efforts to harmonize the coexistence between newcomers and host communities is critical in improving social cohesion and intercultural relations, and in adding complexity to debates around migration.

This is why the UN Alliance of Civilizations and the International Organization for Migration have jointly built this interactive community aimed at promoting good practices of integration.

Migrant Integration Policy Index

MIPEX is a fully interactive tool and reference guide to assess, compare and improve integration policy.

MIPEX measures integration policies in all European Union Member States plus Norway, Switzerland, Canada and the USA up to 31 May 2010. The data from Australia and Japan was collected up to September 2010, but as there have been no changes since May 2010 the data is directly comparable between the 33 countries.

Using 148 policy indicators MIPEX creates a rich, multi-dimensional picture of migrants’ opportunities to participate in society by assessing governments’ commitment to integration. By measuring policies and their implementation it reveals whether all residents are guaranteed equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities.

European Programme for Integration and Migration

EPIM is the European Programme for Integration and Migration, initiated in 2005 within NEF, the Network of European Foundations, by a group of foundations from different European countries.

GMF The German Marshall fund of the United States. Strengthening transatlantic cooperation

The Transatlantic Forum on Migration and Integration (TFMI) is a learning community on migration and integration. The Forum serves as a leading platform for convening future decision-makers and an international forum for exchange on crucial immigration and integration issues. Established in 2008, TFMI brings together young leaders from business, government, media, and academia.

Independent Network of Labour Migration and Integration Experts

The IOM Independent Network of Labour Migration and Integration Experts (LINET) was created in 2009 by the International Organization for Migration in order to provide DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion of the European Commission with expert analysis and advice on economic migration and labour market integration of third country nationals. The network unites experts from 27 Member States of the European Union, Croatia, Norway and Turkey, and aims to support the European Commission in evidence-based decision-making and mainstreaming issues of labour market integration of migrants in achieving Europe 2020 goals.

This website provides the possibility to access and navigate data and knowledge produced by the network, informs of the network events and other activities, as well as aims to facilitate contacts among the experts on migration and integration across the EU.
