Detailed Description

EUMINT - Euroregions, Migration and Integration


A cross-border project for asylum seekers and refugees



Project description

The EUMINT project intends to strengthen institutional cross-border cooperation between Italy and Austria in the territories of Südtirol-Alto Adige (IT), Tirol (AT), Friuli Venezia Giulia (IT), Kärnten (AT), Veneto (IT) and Trentino (IT) in order to tackle the social, economic, political and cultural challenges connected to migration. Common and coherent integration measures in border regions are of prime importance and an added value, particularly for asylum seekers and refugees.

Project goals

The project will involve municipal, provincial/regional and euroregional institutions in three different areas:

  • Consolidating multilevel cross-border cooperation between institutions
  • Strengthening civic and labour integration processes
  • Strengthening social cohesion

 Expected Results

  • Institutional cooperation (WP3): The project promotes the exchange of experiences between project partners through field visits, ideas labs and recommendations for institutions operating at different levels in the field of integration.
  • Civic integration (WP4): The project develops and tests innovative teaching materials on civic integration and trains social workers and other professionals working in the field of welfare and social care. The aim is to promote awareness of European common values (as mentioned in the EU Treaty of Lisbon) among asylum seekers and refugees.
  • Labour integration (WP5): Through participatory processes, the project will design long-term measures and instruments for a better integration of asylum seekers and refugees in the labour market.
