The network DIAMI on active citizenship and intercultural dialogue with migrant people, developed and implemented four thematic seminars between 2012 and 2013. During these meetings, the partnership led by Union Terre Verdiane composed by Swedish, Finnish, Spanish, Italian and Maltese municipalities discussed and compared the national experiences in order to plan common policies related to the integration of migrants.
The project aims at studying a shared methodology and at creating intervention actions to improve the integration of migrant people. In particular, the following specific issues have been addressed:
Training and Education: raising the education level of migrant people
Work: qualifying the workers, developing competences that will be marketable, increasing the occupation after the suggestion of Europe 2020 Strategy
Socialization: promoting the inclusion of migrant people in the life of the communities
Second generation migrants: understanding the dimensions and the social impact of the issue
The first three issues have been addressed by organizing three working groups, while the second generation migrants issue have been addressed in a specific seminar.
