The EC reveals its new EU Action Plan on Integration and Inclusion (2021-2027)

The European Commission (EC) published its new Action Plan on Integration and Inclusion which will help promote and achieve the integration of migrants and EU citizens of migrant background across the EU.

The new plan provides guidance, including on utilising EU funds, and comes with an array of concrete actions.

The main actions are focused on:

  • Inclusive education and training 
  • Improving employment opportunities and skills recognition 
  • Promoting access to healthcare 
  • Access to adequate and affordable housing 

What is new?

The initiative comes in the footsteps of the 2016 action plan. However, the current plan is guided by the principle of Inclusion for All - read what this means here.
