Warsaw - conference and presentation of the second national evaluation report
On June 9, 2022, the European Commission Representation in Poland hosted a conference promoting the publication of the second national NIEM report for Poland. The event was frequented by representatives of NGOs, academia, local institutions and the general public.
In the first part of the meeting, the representatives of the NIEM research team presented the conclusions from the analysis of Poland's experience up to 2020 in comparison with other EU countries covered by the study. Among the challenges that hinder the reform of integration policy, the researchers indicated, inter alia, the lack of data and strategy of central authorities, as well as dispersion and lack of multilateral cooperation between the actors involved in the creation and implementation of integration policies. In the second part of the meeting, the voice was given to beneficiaries of international protection – from Bosnia-Herzegovina and Somalia – who shared their experience and perspectives on integration into Polish society. This was followed by a lively Q & A session with the audience.
