European Migrant Integration Academy (EU-MIA)
The European Migrant Integration Academy (EU-MIA) funded by the European Comission is a research-based co-operative learning and training initiative which aims at aim involving public officials and local stakeholders in the development and implementation of local level integration policies in selected European cities
EU-MIA's objectives are to:
- Increase the systematic sharing of knowledge on key features of local integration policies in European cities on the basis of rigorously-researched criteria for selecting "functioning practices".
- Widely spread practical knowledge on successful integration measures and practices, utilising and extending existing evidence and networks which in turn will help sustain a European-wide community of reflexive practice on integration.
- Improve the capacity of key actors in the field of integration at city and neighbourhood levels through a training academy.
- Reinforce and expand multi-stakeholder and multi-level European networks that share innovative experiences and knowledge on migrant integration in urban contexts
The International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITC-ILO) is the consortium leader in charge of the implementation of this project. The consortium research partners are the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) at the University of Oxford and the International and European Forum of Migration Research (FIERI).
