Conference: Supporting the Integration of Migrants at the Local Level in the Czech Republic
The Association for Integration and Migration (SIMI) is hosting a conference in Prague on 1 October 2020 to facilitate comprehensive discussion of migrant integration in the Czech Republic. Discussion will be focused on support being provided to migrants at the local level, with concentration on long-term trends, progress and successes, current challenges and upcoming possibilities.
A large part of the conference will be dedicated to presenting and discussing the outcomes of the recently concluded “Cities and Inclusive Strategies” project, which has been running for the last three years. The project's three aims were as follows:
- to evaluate the integration of all groups of migrants at the local level in the Czech Republic;
- to build a knowledge-based platform for stakeholders in the integration process;
- to improve integration policies to better reflect the needs of migrants.
The conference will be live-streamed, and in the event that the global health situation renders physical meeting impossible it will instead be held online.
