Why contribute?

The Web Site is designed to act as an EU-wide platform for networking on integration, through exchange about policies and practices. In particular, is:

  • a documentation facility;
  • an on-line data collection tool for good practices; and
  • a platform for the direct exchange of information between stakeholders.

Governmental and non-governmental stakeholders working on integration issues at European, national, regional and local levels are at the centre of the Web Site. They create and share knowledge in the form of documents or good practices. They take an active role in posting news items and events. They use the Web Site both as a reference tool to learn from others and as a practical instrument to communicate information they have.

It is therefore vital that you, as a stakeholder working for the integration of third-country nationals, contribute your knowledge to the wider integration community by making your work available on the Web Site.
