Europe’s patchwork of refugee integration policies: The EU Action Plan on Integration and Inclusion as an instrument to address deficiencies Linking NIEM results to EU action 2021 to 2027

This MPG policy brief investigates to what extent the refugee integration policies analysed in NIEM are in line with the principles, values, and objectives of the EU Action Plan on Integration and Inclusion (2021-2027). Policymakers and stakeholders may identify areas in which the EU Action Plan can help to address policy gaps and needs. Using NIEM results can also help to assess the success of the Action Plan in the coming years. Specific recommendations to the European Commission and Member States suggest how to foster the implementation of the Action Plan and make it more effective.

It elaborates on the advantages as well as systemic shortcomings of each country’s mechanism, describing not only the particulars of targeted and mainstream support, but also the wider challenges of systemic housing issues. 

The role of local governments in the integration of refugees in the V4 countries

This analysis, developed in the framework of the V4NIEM project by authors from all four countries, endeavors to give an overview of the possibilities and limitations of local authorities in the topic of the integration of beneficiaries of international protection . It continues the comparative approach set by the project’s previous publication, “Asylum Seekers and Beneficiaries of International Protection in V4 Countries (Updated Report)”, issued in 2019.  The focus is on local level policies related to beneficiaries of international protection. The “local” level is understood, most importantly, as municipal administration (LAU), however, reflections about the regional levels (NUTS2 and NUTS3) are also added where relevant.
