Integrating migrants in European cities: the Commission engages in direct dialogue with mayors

On Tuesday 5 April, Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu and Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos will receive Mayors, Vice-Mayors and political representatives from several European cities (including Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Berlin, Malmö and Paris) to discuss ways to effectively integrate recently-arrived migrants in urban areas.

Migration is largely an urban reality, and a successful integration of migrants in cities means opportunities for all in the long term. To achieve this, common innovative solutions are needed, with a strong involvement of all stakeholders in urban policies. This will be the focus of the roundtable "How to strengthen the integration of migrants in an urban context" organised in Brussels, in the Berlaymont, on Tuesday morning.
