Integration 2020 brings integration experts together - Event programme out now
The virtual Integration 2020 event will bring together those engaged in advancing immigrant integration and refugee reception on 25–26 November 2020. This major national integration event will be held for the second time and there are hopes to make it a permanent cooperation forum in the field of integration. The event programme has now been published.
Integration 2020 registration and website launch
Different regions and organisations have done a lot of valuable work to promote integration but it is not often that operators in the field get to meet each other. Because of this, they are not always able to share good practices for promoting integration in the most effective way possible. The Integration 2020 event will continue the work started during the first integration event in 2018 and strengthen partnerships between public authorities, the third sector and businesses.
Co-creation of integration report continues
During the autumn, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment will provide opportunities to participate in the preparation of the report on integration. The first consultation on the role of organisations in the work to promote integration was held on Friday 11 September, and an event for researchers on Monday 14 September. Consultations are part of the inclusive preparation process for the report addressing the need for a reform in integration promotion services.
Comprehensive review of integration 2019: Integration as a phenomenon covers multiple dimensions
According to a review published by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment on 21 January 2020, employment alone is not an indication of successful integration, nor is there just one indicator for effective integration.
