Title: SOLIDA - Network of municipalities for promotion of immigrants' democratic participation
Summary
The starting point of SOLIDA project is the “political will” of 7 local administrations to approach the integration of immigrants in their local communities as a continuous, two-way process based on mutual rights and obligation on the part of both immigrants and the host society, in which CIVIC and POLITICAL PARTICIPATION must play a key element. Only if local communities allow a full integration into all aspects of society, including civic and political fields, the immigrants will start feeling as a part of their new communities. The objective of the project is to support local administrations to develop new practice, polices and tools to allow immigrants to become active citizens and to establish the first European Network of Solidarity-based Towns (based on successful RECOSOL experience in Italy) which will represent a place where the municipalities will get inspiration for new solidarity-based activities and get support in improvement of local integration polices. In order to improve immigrants’ democratic participation, the partnership has identified 7 fundamental topics which must be transformed into concrete local policies. Each international event will be dedicated to one topic (or challenge) to be investigated and analyzed by participants: EU Instruments, Introductory programmes, Voting and Political Rights, Consultative bodies, Volunteering, Raise Awareness of local population and Networking. Each event has been structured as a “point of convergence” between EU and local levels: Presentation of EU frameworks, analyses/discussion on local impacts and experiences and technical meeting aimed at importing good practices in form of tangible new policy instruments. The project activities are meant to produce 9 concrete outputs which will be used also after the conclusion of the project: 8 new local policy instruments (1 per partner) to improve immigrants’ democratic participation and 1 permanent transnational network.
