Module 5 aims to cover two distinct though intimately related fields of action on migration policy: integration and reintegration.
Module 5 will address the following aspects:
Topic 1 – The paradigms and challenges of migrants’ integration and reintegration and their impact on development.
Topic 2 – The role of local authorities in facilitating the integration of migrants.
Topic 3 – The role of local authorities in facilitating the reintegration of migrants.
Focus is given to how both issues impact and are impacted by the whole migration cycle, and on the importance of good knowledge of migration trends in order to define pertinent policies and practices.
The module underlines the key issue of cooperation and partnerships for the design of effective mechanisms towards integration and reintegration, and therefore the importance of knowing about and involving a wide range of actors.
An important element is that the module also stresses how being well prepared influences both integration and reintegration, and therefore the importance for local authorities to design strategies aimed at enabling migrants to properly prepare themselves.
