RECOV : A workshop on cross-sectorial partnership in Uzice

On Friday, 7 June 2019, in the City Development Centre hall in Uzice, a workshop on Cross-Sectoral Partnerships – Their Role in the Development of Citizens’ and Local Communities’ Participation was held, under the project Rethinking Collaborative Values for Public Services – RECOV.
Gordana Savic, Coordinator of the Uzice Centre for Human Rights and Democracy, talked about the importance of partnerships in the local community, providing explanation for the types and forms of partnerships in local communities, such as modalities of organization of citizens in a particular geographic region. She accentuated that various local stakeholders gather around common interests and needs that are fulfilled through the public, the private and the civil sector. The aforementioned sectors are based on three key rights which are in the essence of the local communities’ relations as well: the right of choice (public sector), the right of investment (private and civil sector), and the right of association (civil sector).
After she shared her knowledge, she shared her experience and best practices from working with stakeholders from all sectors and concluded that partnerships established on common needs, which implies close collaboration of related actors, common rights and responsibilities, voluntary participation of partners, clearly defined expectations (game rules) and trust, finally lead to development. “As long as our interests match, we have reason to be part of a community, for collaboration provides more successful goals realization and above all, greater credibility,” outlined Savic.
This workshop was organized in the framework of the project RECOV: REthinking COllaborative Values for Public Services, supported by the European programme Europe for Citizens.

Take a step with refugees, take a step with ALDA

June 20th is World Refugee Day, an international observance dedicated to raising awareness of the situation of refugees around the world. The day was chosen by the United Nations General Assembly in its Resolution 55/76 starting from the year 2000.
Among ALDA’s many projects, the topic of refugees and, more broadly, of migrants is relevant and dear to the Association:

With WEMIN (MIgrant Women Empowerment and Integration) the focus is on implementing and promoting a pioneering integration model for migrant and refugee women of all ages in the communities involved. Currently, programs to address social, educational, and professional aspects of inclusion in eight countries throughout the European Union are taking place also through experience-sharing among partners and participants.

LIME: Labour Integration for Migrants Employment aims at promoting the swift integration of young Third Country Nationals -TCNs, between the ages of 18 and 29, in the labour market, by fostering the application of the “Migrants Economic Integration Cluster-MEIC” methodology at the local level all over Europe. This method is an innovative and participatory approach based on a multi-stakeholder partnership which enables context-sensitive solutions in a common long-term strategy. Through this project, this methodology is being implemented in two pilot actions in Italy and Spain where special attention is given towards the obstacles TCNs face when accessing vocational training and qualified jobs.

MIICT – ICT Enabled Public Services for Migration ‘s goal is to design, develop and deploy tools that address the challenge of migrant integration through the co-creation of improved ICT-enabled services with migrants/refugees, public sector services, NGOs, and other interest groups.  A database system called “IMMERSE” (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice) is proposed, intending to capture the specific socio-cultural, economic and legal contexts of migrants to then be shared with public authorities. This system acts as a firewall and only information pertinent to the specific task of the public authority is visible, removing elements such as gender, ethnicity and age thus promoting inclusion and reducing the potential for discrimination and bias.

FromMEtoEU: From migrants engagement to Europe Upgrade follows the idea is that every migrant should be considered as a citizen and that every citizen, having needs, should also bring ideas and innovative approaches to the community in which he lives. Thus the project’s aim is to provide opportunities for European citizens and Migrants’ communities to work together, in order to promote a new idea of a multicultural Europe.  It also gives the chance to highlight the positive potential of solidarity and maximize social collaboration among citizens and migrants while reducing racism and combating skepticism in programs of refugee reception (and Euroscepticism’s too).

Emen – European Migrants Entrepreneurship Network being aware that the promotion of migrant entrepreneurship is a challenge in all Northern, Southern and Eastern/Central European countries, aims to develop, share and promote support schemes for individual migrant entrepreneurs and for social and inclusive enterprises benefitting migrants. It attempts, thus, to share approaches and lessons learned on migrant entrepreneurship across and between public administrations, business development support and financial organisations, social enterprises, non-profit organisations, educational institutions and other public and private organisations supporting migrant entrepreneurship at the city, region and country level.

Following these frameworks ALDA wishes to show its support to an international day which celebrates unity, engagement and sharing among people from all over the world.

As every year, for the World Refugee Day, a new theme is proposed by the UN to engage everyone in this occurrence, and this year’s one is “Taking a step”.

“Around the world, communities, schools, businesses, faith groups and people from all walks of life are taking big and small steps in solidarity with refugees. This World Refugee Day, we challenge everyone to join together and take a step with refugees.”

So join today, get moving and take part in the #StepWithRefugees global challenge!

Faites un pas avec les réfugiés, faites un pas avec ALDA

Le 20 juin est la Journée mondiale des réfugiés, une manifestation internationale dédiée à la sensibilisation à la situation des réfugiés dans le monde. L’Assemblée générale des Nations Unies a choisi cette journée dans sa résolution 55/76 à partir de 2000.
Parmi les nombreux projets de l’ALDA, le sujet des réfugiés et, plus généralement, des migrants est pertinent et cher à l’Association:

Avec WEMIN (MIgrant Women Empowerment and Integration), l’accent est mis sur la mise en œuvre et la promotion d’un modèle novateur d’intégration pour les femmes migrantes et réfugiées de tous âges dans les communautés concernées. Actuellement, des programmes visant à traiter les aspects sociaux, éducatifs et professionnels de l’inclusion dans huit pays de l’Union européenne sont également mis en place à travers le partage d’expériences entre partenaires et participants.

Le projet LIME: Labour Integration for Migrants Employment vise à promouvoir l’intégration rapide des jeunes ressortissants de pays tiers – âgés de 18 à 29 ans – sur le marché du travail, en favorisant l’application de la méthodologie « Migrants Economic Integration Cluster-MEIC» au niveau local dans toute l’Europe. Cette méthode est une approche innovante et participative basée sur un partenariat multipartite qui permet des solutions sensibles au contexte dans une stratégie commune à long terme. Grâce à ce projet, cette méthodologie est mise en œuvre dans deux actions pilotes en Italie et en Espagne, où une attention particulière est accordée aux obstacles que rencontrent les ressortissants de pays tiers pour accéder à la formation professionnelle et à des emplois qualifiés.

MIICT – ICT Enabled Public Services for Migration a pour objectif de concevoir, développer et déployer des outils qui répondent au défi de l’intégration des migrants par la création conjointe de services améliorés basés sur les TIC avec les migrants / réfugiés, les services du secteur public, les ONG et les autres groupes d’intérêt. Un système de base de données appelé «IMMERSE» (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice) est proposé, dans le but de capturer les contextes socioculturels, économiques et juridiques spécifiques des migrants à partager ensuite avec les autorités publiques. Ce système sert de pare-feu et seules les informations pertinentes pour la tâche spécifique de l’autorité publique sont visibles, supprimant des éléments tels que le sexe, l’origine ethnique et l’âge, favorisant ainsi l’inclusion et réduisant les risques de discrimination et de biais.

FromMEtoEU: From migrants engagement to Europe Upgrade affirme que chaque migrant doit être considéré comme un citoyen et que chaque citoyen ayant des besoins doit également apporter des idées et des approches novatrices à la communauté dans laquelle il vit. L’objectif du projet est donc de donner aux citoyens européens et aux communautés de migrants la possibilité de travailler ensemble afin de promouvoir une nouvelle idée d’une Europe multiculturelle. Il donne également l’occasion de mettre en évidence le potentiel positif de solidarité et de maximiser la collaboration sociale entre citoyens et migrants, tout en réduisant le racisme et en combattant le scepticisme dans les programmes d’accueil des réfugiés (et de l’euroscepticisme).

EMEN – European Migrants Entrepreneurship Network est conscient que la promotion de l’entrepreneuriat migrant est un défi dans tous les pays d’Europe du Nord, du Sud et d’Europe centrale et orientale et vise à développer, partager et promouvoir des programmes de soutien aux entrepreneurs migrants individuels et aux entreprises sociales et inclusives bénéficiant aux migrants . Il tente donc de partager les approches et les enseignements tirés de l’entrepreneuriat migrant entre et parmi les administrations publiques, les organismes d’aide au développement des entreprises et les organismes financiers, les entreprises sociales, les organisations à but non lucratif, les établissements d’enseignement et d’autres organismes publics et privés soutenant l’entrepreneuriat migrant dans la ville. région et pays.

Dans le respect de ces cadres, l’ALDA souhaite manifester son soutien à une journée internationale célébrant l’unité, l’engagement et le partage entre les peuples du monde entier.

Comme chaque année, à l’occasion de la Journée mondiale des réfugiés, l’ONU propose un nouveau thème pour engager tout le monde dans cet événement. Celui de cette année est «Faire un pas».

«Partout dans le monde, des communautés, des écoles, des entreprises, des groupes confessionnels et des personnes de tous les horizons font de grands et petits gestes de solidarité avec les réfugiés. En cette Journée mondiale des réfugiés, nous mettons au défi tout le monde de s’unir et de faire un pas avec les réfugiés».

Alors rejoignez-nous aujourd’hui, bougez et prenez part au défi mondial #StepWithRefugees!

Fai un passo con i rifugiati, fai un passo con ALDA

Il 20 giungo è la Giornata Mondiale del Rifugiato, un’osservanza dedicata alla presa di coscienza sulla situazione dei rifugiati nel mondo. Il giorno venne scelto dall’Assemblea Generale delle Nazioni Unite nella sua Risoluzione 55/76, a partire dal 2000.
Tra i progetti di ALDA, l’argomento “rifugiati” e, più generalmente, “migranti” è molto caro e importante per l’Associazione.

WEMIN – MIgrant Women Empowerment and Integration ha come obiettivo quello di realizzare e promuovere un modello pionieristico d’integrazione per le donne immigrate e rifugiate di tutte le età, nelle comunità coinvolte. Attualmente, sono in corso programmi mirati ad aspetti sociali, educativi e professionali del processo d’inclusione, in ben otto Paesi dell’Unione europea, di cui fondamentale lo scambio di esperienze tra partner e partecipanti.

LIME: Labour Integration for Migrants Employment mira a promuovere una rapida integrazione dei giovani cittadini dei Paesi terzi, di età compresa tra 18 e 29 anni, nel mercato del lavoro, promuovendo l’applicazione della metodologia MEIC – Cluster di Integrazione Economica dei Migranti in tutta Europa, a livello locale. Si tratta di un metodo innovativo e basato sull’approccio partecipativo di partenariato multi-stakeholder, che permette di contestualizzare le attività di soluzioni sensibili in una strategia comune di lungo termine. Attraverso questo progetto, tale metodologia è stata concretizzata in due azioni pilote, in Italia e Spagna, dove speciale attenzione è stata posta agli ostacoli che i cittadini di Paesi terzi incontrano nell’accesso alla formazione professionale e a lavori qualificati.

Obiettivo principale di MIICT – ICT Enabled Public Services for Migration consiste nel progettare, realizzare e sviluppare strumenti che affrontino la sfida d’integrazione dei migranti, attraverso la co-creazione di servizi TIC migliori, con i migranti/rifugiati, servizi del settore pubblico, organizzazioni non governative e altri tipi di gruppi d’interesse. E’ stato proposto un sistema database chiamato “IMMERSE” (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice), al fine di cogliere le specificità socio-culturali, economiche e legali dei contesti dei migranti, da essere quindi condivise con le autorità pubbliche. Il sistema agisce come un firewall e sono visibili solo le informazioni pertinenti ai compiti specifici dell’autorità locale, omettendo genere, etnia, età, promuovendo così l’inclusione e riducendo i rischi di discriminazione e pregiudizi.

FromMEtoEU: From migrants engagement to Europe Upgrade segue l’idea che ogni migrante debba essere considerato come un cittadino e che ogni cittadino, avendo dei propri bisogni specifici, debba anche apportare idee e approcci innovativi alla comunità in cui vive. Dunque, l’obiettivo del progetto consiste nell’offrire opportunità di collaborazione ai cittadini europei e alle comunità di migranti, al fine di promuove una nuova idea di multiculturalismo in Europa. Inoltre, offre la possibilità di evidenziare il potenziale positivo della solidarietà e massimizzare la collaborazione sociale tra cittadini e migranti, combattendo così il razzismo e lo scetticismo nei confronti dei programmi di accoglienza dei migranti (così come l’euroscetticismo).

EMEN – European Migrants Entrepreneurship Network, riconoscendo nella promozione dello spirito imprenditoriale dei migranti una sfida per tutti i Paesi dell’Europa settentrionale, meridionale e centro-orientale, mira a sviluppare, condividere e promuovere schemi di supporto per i singoli imprenditori emigrati e per imprese sociali e inclusive per il beneficio dei migranti. Si cerca dunque di condividere gli approcci e le lezioni apprese grazie all’imprenditoria dei migranti, attraverso le pubbliche amministrazioni, il supporto dello sviluppo commerciale e delle organizzazioni finanziarie, le imprese sociali, le organizzazioni no-profit, le istituzioni educative e altre organizzazioni, pubbliche e private, in supporto all’imprenditoria dei migranti, a livello cittadino, regionale e nazionale.

In linea con questo contesto, ALDA si augura di mostrare il suo supporto a una giornata internazionale che celebra unità, impegno e condivisione, tra i popoli di tutto il mondo.

Come ogni anno, per la Giornata Mondiale del Rifugiato, viene proposto dalle Nazioni Unite un tema nuovo, per coinvolgere tutti in questa ricorrenza, e quello di quest’anno è “Fai un passo”.

“In tutto il mondo, comunità, scuole, imprese, gruppi religiosi e persone di ogni estrazione sociale e culturale, faranno un piccolo grande passo avanti in solidarietà con i miranti. In questa Giornata Mondiale del Rifugiato, sfidiamo tutti a fare un passo avanti con i rifugiati”.

Allora unisciti, prendi parte e muoviti per questa sfida globale #StepWithRefugees

Сделай шаг навстречу беженцам, сделай шаг с ALDA

20 июня – Международный день беженцев, международное празднование, посвященное повышению осведомленности о положении беженцев во всем мире. День был выбран Генеральной Ассамблеей Организации Объединенных Наций в ее резолюции 55/76, начиная с 2000 года.
Среди многих проектов ALDA тема беженцев и, в более широком смысле, мигрантов является актуальной и важной для Ассоциации:

В рамках WEMIN (Расширение прав и возможностей женщин-мигрантов) основное внимание уделяется внедрению и продвижению новаторской модели интеграции, а также вовлечению женщин-мигрантов и женщин-беженцев всех возрастов в сообщества. В настоящее время программы, направленные на решение социальных, образовательных и профессиональных аспектов интеграции в восьми странах Европейского Союза, осуществляются также путем обмена опытом между партнерами и участниками.

LIME – Трудовая занятость и трудоустройство для мигрантов нацелена на содействие быстрой интеграции молодых граждан третьих стран (TCN) в возрасте от 18 до 29 лет на рынке труда путем стимуляции и применения методологии «Кластер-интеграционная система экономической интеграции мигрантов (MEIC)» на местном уровне по всей Европе. Этот метод является инновационным и основанным на широком применении подходов, основанных на партнерстве и участии многих заинтересованных сторон, которые позволяют применять контекстно-зависимые решения в общей долгосрочной стратегии. В рамках LIME эта методология внедряется в двух пилотных проектах в Италии и Испании, где особое внимание уделяется препятствиям, с которыми сталкиваются TCN при доступе к профессиональному обучению и квалифицированным рабочим местам.

MIICT – Государственные службы миграции с поддержкой ICT – это разработку и внедрение инструментов и механизмов, которые решают проблему интеграции мигрантов посредством совместного создания улучшенных услуг с поддержкой ICT с мигрантами / беженцами, государственными службами, НПО и другими заинтересованными группами. Предлагается система базы данных под названием «IMMERSE» (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice), предназначенная для определения конкретных социально-культурных, экономических и правовых ситуаций мигрантов, которые затем будут переданы государственным органам. Эта система действует как брандмауэр, и видна только информация, относящаяся к конкретной задаче государственного органа, удаляя такие элементы, как пол, этническая принадлежность и возраст, тем самым способствуя помощи и уменьшая вероятность дискриминации и предвзятости.

FromMEtoEU – от вовлечения мигрантов до обновления Европы –  следует за идеей, что каждый мигрант должен рассматриваться как гражданин, и что каждый гражданин, имеющий потребности, должен также привносить идеи и инновационные подходы в общество, в котором он живет. Таким образом, цель проекта состоит в том, чтобы предоставить возможность европейским гражданам и сообществам мигрантов работать вместе, чтобы продвигать новую идею многокультурной Европы. Это также дает возможность выделить позитивный потенциал солидарности и максимизировать социальное сотрудничество между гражданами и мигрантами при одновременном снижении расизма и борьбе со скептицизмом в программах приема беженцев (и в евроскептицизме тоже).

EMEN – Сеть Предпринимательства Европейских Мигрантов, Осознавая, что содействие предпринимательству мигрантов является сложной задачей во всех странах Северной, Южной и Восточной / Центральной Европы, направлено на разработку, распространение и продвижение схем поддержки для индивидуальных предпринимателей-мигрантов, а также для социальных и инклюзивных предприятий, приносящих пользу мигрантам , таким образом, они обмениваются подходами и извлеченными уроками в области предпринимательской деятельности мигрантов между государственными администрациями, финансовыми организациями, оказывающими поддержку развитию бизнеса, социальными предприятиями, некоммерческими организациями, образовательными учреждениями и другими государственными и частными организациями, поддерживающими предпринимательство мигрантов в городе, на уровне региона и страны.
Следуя этим принципам, ALDA хочет продемонстрировать свою поддержку международному дню мигрантов, который празднует единство, участие и обмен между людьми со всего мира.

Как и каждый год, во Всемирный день беженцев, ООН предлагает новую тему, чтобы привлечь всех к этому событию, а в этом году –  это «Сделай шаг».

«Во всем мире общины, школы, предприятия, религиозные группы и люди из всех слоев общества делают большие и маленькие шаги в знак солидарности с беженцами. В этот Всемирный день беженцев мы призываем всех объединиться и сделать шаг навстречу беженцам».

Так что присоединяйтесь сегодня, двигайтесь и участвуйте в глобальной акции #StepWithRefugees!

Zakoračite sa izbeglicama, zakoračite sa ALDA-om

20. jun je Svetski dan izbeglica, međunarodno obeležavanje posvećeno podizanju svesti o situaciji izbeglica širom sveta. Dan je izabran na Generalnoj skupštini Ujedinjenih nacija u svojoj Rezoluciji 55/76, počevši od 2000. godine.
Među mnogim projektima ALDA-e, tema izbeglica i, šire gledano, migranata je relevantna i draga Udruženju:

Sa WEMIN-om (Osnaživanje i integracija žena migranata) fokus je na implementaciji i promovisanju pionirskog modela integracije za žene migrante i izbeglice svih uzrasta u uklјučenim zajednicama. Trenutno, programi za rešavanje socijalnih, obrazovnih i profesionalnih aspekata uklјučivanja u osam zemalјa širom Evropske unije odvijaju se i kroz razmenu iskustava između partnera i učesnika.

LIME: Radna integracija za zapošljavanje migranata (Intégration du travail pour l'emploi des migrants) ima za cilј promovisanje brzu integraciju mladih žena trećeg sveta – TCN, između 18 i 29 godina, u na tržištu rada, obezbeđivanjem primene metodologije “Migrantskog ekonomskog integracionog klastera – MEIC” na lokalnom nivou širom Evrope. Ovaj metod je inovativan i participativan pristup koji se zasniva na partnerstvu sa više zainteresovanih strana koje omogućava rešenja u zajedničkoj dugoročnoj strategiji. Kroz ovaj projekat, metodologija se implementira u dve pilot aktivnosti u Italiji i Španiji gde se posebna pažnja posvećuje preprekama sa kojima se građani susreću prilikom pristupa stručnom osposoblјavanju i poslovima.

MIICT – ICT Javne usluge za migracije cilј je da se dizajniraju, razviju i primene alati koji se odnose na izazove integracije migranata kroz zajedničko stvaranje bolјih IT usluga sa migrantima / izbeglicama, službama javnog sektora, nevladinim organizacijama i drugim interesnim grupama. Predložen je sistem baze podataka pod nazivom “IMMERSE” (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice), koji ima za cilј da obuhvati specifične socio-kulturne, ekonomske i pravne kontekste migranata koji se zatim dele sa javnim vlastima. Ovaj sistem funkcioniše kao zaštitni zid i vidlјive su samo informacije koje se odnose na specifične zadatke javnih vlasti, uklanjajući elemente kao što su pol, etnička pripadnost i starost, čime se promoviše inkluzija i smanjuje mogućnost diskriminacije i pristrasnosti.

FromMEtoEU: Ideja projekta je da se svaki migrant treba smatrati građaninom i da svaki građanin, ima potrebe, i da treba da doprinosi idejama i inovativnim pristupima u zajednici u kojoj živi. Stoga je cilј projekta da pruži mogućnosti građanima Evrope i migrantske zajednice da rade zajedno, kako bi promovisali novu ideju multikulturalne Evrope. Projekat takođe stavlja akcenat na pozitivan potencijal solidarnosti i uvećavanja društvene saradnje među građanima i migrantima uz smanjenje rasizma i borbu protiv skepticizma u programima prijema izbeglica (kao i Evroskepticizma).

Emen – Evropska Migrantska Preduzetnička Mreža, svesni da je promocija preduzetništva migranata izazov u svim severnim, južnim i istočnim / centralnim -evropskim zemalјama, projekat ima za cilј da razvije, deli i promoviše programe podrške za individualne preduzetnike migrante i za socijalna i inkluzivna preduzeća u kojima migranti imaju korist. Projekat dakle pokušava da podeli pristupe i naučene lekcije o preduzetništvu migranata između javnih uprava, podrške poslovnom razvoju i finansijskih organizacija, društvenih preduzeća, neprofitnih organizacija, obrazovnih institucija i drugih javnih i privatnih organizacija koje podržavaju poduzetništvo migranata na nivou grada, regiona i države.
Sledeći ove okvire, ALDA želi da pokaže svoju podršku međunarodnom danu koji slavi jedinstvo i angažman među lјudima iz celog sveta.

Kao i svake godine, za Svetski dan izbeglica, UN predlaže novu temu kako bi se svi uklјučili u ovaj događaj, a ovogodišnja tema je “Prvi korak”.

„Širom sveta, zajednice, škole, preduzeća, verske zajednice i lјudi iz svih sfera života preduzimaju velike i male korake u solidarnosti sa izbeglicama. Na ovaj Svetski dan izbeglica, pozivamo sve ljude da se udruže i naprave prvi korak sa izbeglicama.”
Pridružite se danas, pokrenite se i učestvujte u globalnom izazovu #StepWithRefugees!

 

قم بقطع خطوة مع اللاجئين, قم بقطع خطوة مع ألدا

يوافق تاريخ 20 جوان (حزيران) اليوم العالمي للاجئين, وهو اليوم الذي يتطلب جهودا دولية دؤوبة تخصص لنشر التوعية والتذكير بوضعية اللاجئين في كافة أنحاء العالم. تم اختيار هذا اليوم من قبل الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة, على أساس قرارها رقم 55.76, وذلك انطلاقا من سنة 2000. من بين المشاريع المختلفة التي تديرها ألدا,  يكتسي محور اللاجئين, وبشكل واسع, موضوع المهاجرين, أهمية خاصة حيث أنه يحتل أعلى المراتب على جدول أعمال المنظمة:

في إطار مشروع ويمن (WEMEN) (تمكين المرأة المهاجرة ودمجها), يتم التركيز على تنفيذ وتعزيز المنوال المثالي لمنظومة الدمج الخاصة بالمرأة المهاجرة واللاجئة, وذلك صلب مختلف الشرائح العمرية في المجتمعات المحلية المعنية. كما يتم حاليا السهر على تنفيذ ثمانية برامج تعنى بالجوانب الاجتماعية والتربوية والمهنية حول الادماج في ثمانية بلدان في الاتحاد الأوروبي, بالإضافة إلى الجهود المبذولة حول تقاسم التجارب بين مختلف الشركاء والمشاركين.

يهدف مشروع لايم (CITRON VERT) (إشراك القوة العاملة لتشغيل المهاجرين) إلى التسريع بدمج رعايا البلدان الثالثة من الشباب الذين تتراوح أعمارهم بين 18 و 29 سنة, في سوق الشغل وذلك بالسعي إلى تطبيق منهجية “الإدماج الاقتصادي لمجموعة المهاجرين” (MEIC), على المستوى المحلي وفي كافة أنحاء أوروبا. تعتبر هذه المنهجية مقاربة مجددة وتشاركية وتستند إلى الشراكة على أساس الأطراف المتعددة التي تمكن من توفير الحلول المعتمدة على السياق وفي إطار استراتيجية مشتركة وطويلة الأمد. من خلال هذا المشروع, يتم تنفيذ هذه المقاربة في إطار نشاطين نموذجين اثنين في كل من إيطاليا وإسبانيا, حيث يتم إيلاء أهمية قصوى للعراقيل التي يتعرض لها رعايا البلدان الثالثة في محاولاتهم للحصول على فرص للتدريب المهني والظفر بشغل يعتمد على الكفاءات والمهارات.

يهدف مشروع خدمات التمكين العمومية لفائدة المهاجرين في مجال تكنولوجيات المعلومات والاتصال (MIICT), إلى المساعدة على تصميم وتطوير ونشر الأدوات والوسائل الضرورية لمواجهة التحديات التي تحول دون تمكين المهاجرين من الاندماج في االمجتمع, وذلك من خلال الخلق المشترك لخدمات تمكين أفضل في مجال التكنولوجيات والاتصال بالشراكة مع المهاجرين/اللاجئين, والمسؤولين عن قطاع الخدمات العمومية, والمنظمات غير الحكومية والعديد من المجموعات الأخرى ذات المصلحة.  هناك قاعدة بيانات تعرف باسم إيمرس (IMMERSE) (دمج المهاجرين في خدمات ماتشار) الذي تم اقتراحه بهدف استغلال أمثل للخصوصيات الاجتماعية والثقافية والاقتصادية, وكذلك الأطر القانونية للمهاجرين لكي يتم تقاسمها لاحقا مع السلطات العمومية. يتم استعمال هذا النظام كجدار الحماية بحيث لا يتم استعمال سوى البيانات المطلوبة حول الخطة المعروضة حصريا أمام السلطات العمومية المعنية, وذلك بحذف كافة البيانات التي تخرج عن نطاق المهمة المعروضة, على غرار البيانات التي تخص النوع الاجتماعي والمجموعة الإثنية والسن, لكي يتمكن المعنيون من تعزيز عملية الإدماج والتخلص من خطر التمييز والمعايير الذاتية.

مشروع من انتداب المهاجرين إلى تحسين الوضع الأوروبي: يأتي مشروع من انتداب المهاجرين إلى تحسين الوضع الأوروبي كتكملة للفرضية الداعية إلى اعتبار كل مهاجر كمواطن وأن كل مواطن, له حاجياته, مطالب بتقديم أفكار ومقاربات مجددة لفائدة المجتمع الذي يعيش صلبه. وبالتالي, يهدف المشروع إلى توفير الفرص السانحة للمواطنين الأوروبيين ومجتمعات المهاجرين للعمل المشترك والسعي إلى تعزيز مفهوم جديد يخدم مصلحة أوروبا متعددة الثقافات. كما يمنح هذا المفهوم الفرصة لإبراز القدرات الإيجابية لروح التضامن واستغلال التعاون الاجتماعي على الوجه الأمثل بين كل من المواطنين والمهاجرين, مع السعي إلى تقليص مظاهر التمييز ومحاربة خطر التشكيك بواسطة البرامج التي يمكن تنظيمها بهدف استقبال المهاجرين والترحيب بهم (بدون أن ننسى مشكلة التشكيك في أوروبا).

أيمان (EMEN) – بعد إدراكها للتحدي الذي تمثله منظومة دعم ريادة الأعمال لدى المهاجرين, في بلدان شمال وجنوب وشرق ووسط أوروبا, تهدف شبكة ريادة الأعمال الأوروبية لفائدة المهاجرين تطوير وتقاسم ومساندة برامج الدعم المقدم لفائدة المهاجرين الأفراد من رواد الأعمال وكذلك لفائدة المهاجرين المنتفعين من خدمات المؤسسات الاجتماعية والشاملة. كما تسعى هذه الشبكة إلى تقاسم المقاربات والاستفادة من الدروس المستوعبة في مجال ريادة الأعمال لدى المهاجرين, سواء داخل أو بين كافة ألإدارات العمومية, أو لتعزيز منظومة التنمية التجارية ومؤازرة المنظمات الاقتصادية والمؤسسات التربوية, وكذلك المنظمات العمومية والخاصة الأخرى.

وعلى ضوء هذا الإطار الجديد, تعرب ألدا على استعدادها التام لتقديم كافة أشكال الدعم للجهود الرامية إلى تنظيم يوم عالمي يخصص للاحتفال بالوحدة والالتزام والتفاعل بين المواطنين من كافة أنحاء العالم وبدون أي استثناء أو اقصاء. تماما كما هو الشأن كل عام, بالنسبة لليوم العالمي لللاجئين, تم اقتراح محور جديد من قبل الأمم المتحدة لدمج كافة الأطراف الممكنة في هذه التظاهرة, مع التذكير أن المحور الذي تم اختياره لهذا العام هو “قطع خطوة”.

” في كافة أرجاء المعمورة, يتولى الأفراد في المجتمعات المحلية والمدارس والمؤسسات وصلب الجماعات الدينية كذلك, قطع الخطوات, كبيرة كانت أم صغيرة, على درب التضامن مع اللاجئين. وبالتالي’ نحن نناشد كافة الأطراف للمساهمة الفاعلة والحقيقية في هذه التظاهرة الدولية المخصصة للاحتفال باليوم العالمي لللاجئين وقطع خطوة إضافة وهامة على درب التعاون معهم”.

التحقوا بنا اليوم, تحركوا وساهموا في تظاهرة قطع خطوة مع اللاجئين لرفع التحدي الدولي الخاص بمسألة الهجرة.

June 20th is World Refugee Day, an international observance dedicated to raising awareness of the situation of refugees around the world. The day was chosen by the United Nations General Assembly in its Resolution 55/76 starting from the year 2000.
Among ALDA’s many projects, the topic of refugees and, more broadly, of migrants is relevant and dear to the Association:

With WEMIN (MIgrant Women Empowerment and Integration) the focus is on implementing and promoting a pioneering integration model for migrant and refugee women of all ages in the communities involved. Currently, programs to address social, educational, and professional aspects of inclusion in eight countries throughout the European Union are taking place also through experience-sharing among partners and participants.

LIME: Labour Integration for Migrants Employment aims at promoting the swift integration of young Third Country Nationals -TCNs, between the ages of 18 and 29, in the labour market, by fostering the application of the “Migrants Economic Integration Cluster-MEIC” methodology at the local level all over Europe. This method is an innovative and participatory approach based on a multi-stakeholder partnership which enables context-sensitive solutions in a common long-term strategy. Through this project, this methodology is being implemented in two pilot actions in Italy and Spain where special attention is given towards the obstacles TCNs face when accessing vocational training and qualified jobs.

MIICT – ICT Enabled Public Services for Migration ‘s goal is to design, develop and deploy tools that address the challenge of migrant integration through the co-creation of improved ICT-enabled services with migrants/refugees, public sector services, NGOs, and other interest groups.  A database system called “IMMERSE” (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice) is proposed, intending to capture the specific socio-cultural, economic and legal contexts of migrants to then be shared with public authorities. This system acts as a firewall and only information pertinent to the specific task of the public authority is visible, removing elements such as gender, ethnicity and age thus promoting inclusion and reducing the potential for discrimination and bias.

FromMEtoEU: From migrants engagement to Europe Upgrade follows the idea is that every migrant should be considered as a citizen and that every citizen, having needs, should also bring ideas and innovative approaches to the community in which he lives. Thus the project’s aim is to provide opportunities for European citizens and Migrants’ communities to work together, in order to promote a new idea of a multicultural Europe.  It also gives the chance to highlight the positive potential of solidarity and maximize social collaboration among citizens and migrants while reducing racism and combating skepticism in programs of refugee reception (and Euroscepticism’s too).

Emen – European Migrants Entrepreneurship Network being aware that the promotion of migrant entrepreneurship is a challenge in all Northern, Southern and Eastern/Central European countries, aims to develop, share and promote support schemes for individual migrant entrepreneurs and for social and inclusive enterprises benefitting migrants. It attempts, thus, to share approaches and lessons learned on migrant entrepreneurship across and between public administrations, business development support and financial organisations, social enterprises, non-profit organisations, educational institutions and other public and private organisations supporting migrant entrepreneurship at the city, region and country level.

Following these frameworks ALDA wishes to show its support to an international day which celebrates unity, engagement and sharing among people from all over the world.

As every year, for the World Refugee Day, a new theme is proposed by the UN to engage everyone in this occurrence, and this year’s one is “Taking a step”.

“Around the world, communities, schools, businesses, faith groups and people from all walks of life are taking big and small steps in solidarity with refugees. This World Refugee Day, we challenge everyone to join together and take a step with refugees.”

So join today, get moving and take part in the #StepWithRefugees global challenge!

Faites un pas avec les réfugiés, faites un pas avec ALDA

Le 20 juin est la Journée mondiale des réfugiés, une manifestation internationale dédiée à la sensibilisation à la situation des réfugiés dans le monde. L’Assemblée générale des Nations Unies a choisi cette journée dans sa résolution 55/76 à partir de 2000.
Parmi les nombreux projets de l’ALDA, le sujet des réfugiés et, plus généralement, des migrants est pertinent et cher à l’Association:

Avec WEMIN (MIgrant Women Empowerment and Integration), l’accent est mis sur la mise en œuvre et la promotion d’un modèle novateur d’intégration pour les femmes migrantes et réfugiées de tous âges dans les communautés concernées. Actuellement, des programmes visant à traiter les aspects sociaux, éducatifs et professionnels de l’inclusion dans huit pays de l’Union européenne sont également mis en place à travers le partage d’expériences entre partenaires et participants.

Le projet LIME: Labour Integration for Migrants Employment vise à promouvoir l’intégration rapide des jeunes ressortissants de pays tiers – âgés de 18 à 29 ans – sur le marché du travail, en favorisant l’application de la méthodologie « Migrants Economic Integration Cluster-MEIC» au niveau local dans toute l’Europe. Cette méthode est une approche innovante et participative basée sur un partenariat multipartite qui permet des solutions sensibles au contexte dans une stratégie commune à long terme. Grâce à ce projet, cette méthodologie est mise en œuvre dans deux actions pilotes en Italie et en Espagne, où une attention particulière est accordée aux obstacles que rencontrent les ressortissants de pays tiers pour accéder à la formation professionnelle et à des emplois qualifiés.

MIICT – ICT Enabled Public Services for Migration a pour objectif de concevoir, développer et déployer des outils qui répondent au défi de l’intégration des migrants par la création conjointe de services améliorés basés sur les TIC avec les migrants / réfugiés, les services du secteur public, les ONG et les autres groupes d’intérêt. Un système de base de données appelé «IMMERSE» (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice) est proposé, dans le but de capturer les contextes socioculturels, économiques et juridiques spécifiques des migrants à partager ensuite avec les autorités publiques. Ce système sert de pare-feu et seules les informations pertinentes pour la tâche spécifique de l’autorité publique sont visibles, supprimant des éléments tels que le sexe, l’origine ethnique et l’âge, favorisant ainsi l’inclusion et réduisant les risques de discrimination et de biais.

FromMEtoEU: From migrants engagement to Europe Upgrade affirme que chaque migrant doit être considéré comme un citoyen et que chaque citoyen ayant des besoins doit également apporter des idées et des approches novatrices à la communauté dans laquelle il vit. L’objectif du projet est donc de donner aux citoyens européens et aux communautés de migrants la possibilité de travailler ensemble afin de promouvoir une nouvelle idée d’une Europe multiculturelle. Il donne également l’occasion de mettre en évidence le potentiel positif de solidarité et de maximiser la collaboration sociale entre citoyens et migrants, tout en réduisant le racisme et en combattant le scepticisme dans les programmes d’accueil des réfugiés (et de l’euroscepticisme).

EMEN – European Migrants Entrepreneurship Network est conscient que la promotion de l’entrepreneuriat migrant est un défi dans tous les pays d’Europe du Nord, du Sud et d’Europe centrale et orientale et vise à développer, partager et promouvoir des programmes de soutien aux entrepreneurs migrants individuels et aux entreprises sociales et inclusives bénéficiant aux migrants . Il tente donc de partager les approches et les enseignements tirés de l’entrepreneuriat migrant entre et parmi les administrations publiques, les organismes d’aide au développement des entreprises et les organismes financiers, les entreprises sociales, les organisations à but non lucratif, les établissements d’enseignement et d’autres organismes publics et privés soutenant l’entrepreneuriat migrant dans la ville. région et pays.

Dans le respect de ces cadres, l’ALDA souhaite manifester son soutien à une journée internationale célébrant l’unité, l’engagement et le partage entre les peuples du monde entier.

Comme chaque année, à l’occasion de la Journée mondiale des réfugiés, l’ONU propose un nouveau thème pour engager tout le monde dans cet événement. Celui de cette année est «Faire un pas».

«Partout dans le monde, des communautés, des écoles, des entreprises, des groupes confessionnels et des personnes de tous les horizons font de grands et petits gestes de solidarité avec les réfugiés. En cette Journée mondiale des réfugiés, nous mettons au défi tout le monde de s’unir et de faire un pas avec les réfugiés».

Alors rejoignez-nous aujourd’hui, bougez et prenez part au défi mondial #StepWithRefugees!

Fai un passo con i rifugiati, fai un passo con ALDA

Il 20 giungo è la Giornata Mondiale del Rifugiato, un’osservanza dedicata alla presa di coscienza sulla situazione dei rifugiati nel mondo. Il giorno venne scelto dall’Assemblea Generale delle Nazioni Unite nella sua Risoluzione 55/76, a partire dal 2000.
Tra i progetti di ALDA, l’argomento “rifugiati” e, più generalmente, “migranti” è molto caro e importante per l’Associazione.

WEMIN – MIgrant Women Empowerment and Integration ha come obiettivo quello di realizzare e promuovere un modello pionieristico d’integrazione per le donne immigrate e rifugiate di tutte le età, nelle comunità coinvolte. Attualmente, sono in corso programmi mirati ad aspetti sociali, educativi e professionali del processo d’inclusione, in ben otto Paesi dell’Unione europea, di cui fondamentale lo scambio di esperienze tra partner e partecipanti.

LIME: Labour Integration for Migrants Employment mira a promuovere una rapida integrazione dei giovani cittadini dei Paesi terzi, di età compresa tra 18 e 29 anni, nel mercato del lavoro, promuovendo l’applicazione della metodologia MEIC – Cluster di Integrazione Economica dei Migranti in tutta Europa, a livello locale. Si tratta di un metodo innovativo e basato sull’approccio partecipativo di partenariato multi-stakeholder, che permette di contestualizzare le attività di soluzioni sensibili in una strategia comune di lungo termine. Attraverso questo progetto, tale metodologia è stata concretizzata in due azioni pilote, in Italia e Spagna, dove speciale attenzione è stata posta agli ostacoli che i cittadini di Paesi terzi incontrano nell’accesso alla formazione professionale e a lavori qualificati.

Obiettivo principale di MIICT – ICT Enabled Public Services for Migration consiste nel progettare, realizzare e sviluppare strumenti che affrontino la sfida d’integrazione dei migranti, attraverso la co-creazione di servizi TIC migliori, con i migranti/rifugiati, servizi del settore pubblico, organizzazioni non governative e altri tipi di gruppi d’interesse. E’ stato proposto un sistema database chiamato “IMMERSE” (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice), al fine di cogliere le specificità socio-culturali, economiche e legali dei contesti dei migranti, da essere quindi condivise con le autorità pubbliche. Il sistema agisce come un firewall e sono visibili solo le informazioni pertinenti ai compiti specifici dell’autorità locale, omettendo genere, etnia, età, promuovendo così l’inclusione e riducendo i rischi di discriminazione e pregiudizi.

FromMEtoEU: From migrants engagement to Europe Upgrade segue l’idea che ogni migrante debba essere considerato come un cittadino e che ogni cittadino, avendo dei propri bisogni specifici, debba anche apportare idee e approcci innovativi alla comunità in cui vive. Dunque, l’obiettivo del progetto consiste nell’offrire opportunità di collaborazione ai cittadini europei e alle comunità di migranti, al fine di promuove una nuova idea di multiculturalismo in Europa. Inoltre, offre la possibilità di evidenziare il potenziale positivo della solidarietà e massimizzare la collaborazione sociale tra cittadini e migranti, combattendo così il razzismo e lo scetticismo nei confronti dei programmi di accoglienza dei migranti (così come l’euroscetticismo).

EMEN – European Migrants Entrepreneurship Network, riconoscendo nella promozione dello spirito imprenditoriale dei migranti una sfida per tutti i Paesi dell’Europa settentrionale, meridionale e centro-orientale, mira a sviluppare, condividere e promuovere schemi di supporto per i singoli imprenditori emigrati e per imprese sociali e inclusive per il beneficio dei migranti. Si cerca dunque di condividere gli approcci e le lezioni apprese grazie all’imprenditoria dei migranti, attraverso le pubbliche amministrazioni, il supporto dello sviluppo commerciale e delle organizzazioni finanziarie, le imprese sociali, le organizzazioni no-profit, le istituzioni educative e altre organizzazioni, pubbliche e private, in supporto all’imprenditoria dei migranti, a livello cittadino, regionale e nazionale.

In linea con questo contesto, ALDA si augura di mostrare il suo supporto a una giornata internazionale che celebra unità, impegno e condivisione, tra i popoli di tutto il mondo.

Come ogni anno, per la Giornata Mondiale del Rifugiato, viene proposto dalle Nazioni Unite un tema nuovo, per coinvolgere tutti in questa ricorrenza, e quello di quest’anno è “Fai un passo”.

“In tutto il mondo, comunità, scuole, imprese, gruppi religiosi e persone di ogni estrazione sociale e culturale, faranno un piccolo grande passo avanti in solidarietà con i miranti. In questa Giornata Mondiale del Rifugiato, sfidiamo tutti a fare un passo avanti con i rifugiati”.

Allora unisciti, prendi parte e muoviti per questa sfida globale #StepWithRefugees

Сделай шаг навстречу беженцам, сделай шаг с ALDA

20 июня – Международный день беженцев, международное празднование, посвященное повышению осведомленности о положении беженцев во всем мире. День был выбран Генеральной Ассамблеей Организации Объединенных Наций в ее резолюции 55/76, начиная с 2000 года.
Среди многих проектов ALDA тема беженцев и, в более широком смысле, мигрантов является актуальной и важной для Ассоциации:

В рамках WEMIN (Расширение прав и возможностей женщин-мигрантов) основное внимание уделяется внедрению и продвижению новаторской модели интеграции, а также вовлечению женщин-мигрантов и женщин-беженцев всех возрастов в сообщества. В настоящее время программы, направленные на решение социальных, образовательных и профессиональных аспектов интеграции в восьми странах Европейского Союза, осуществляются также путем обмена опытом между партнерами и участниками.

LIME – Трудовая занятость и трудоустройство для мигрантов нацелена на содействие быстрой интеграции молодых граждан третьих стран (TCN) в возрасте от 18 до 29 лет на рынке труда путем стимуляции и применения методологии «Кластер-интеграционная система экономической интеграции мигрантов (MEIC)» на местном уровне по всей Европе. Этот метод является инновационным и основанным на широком применении подходов, основанных на партнерстве и участии многих заинтересованных сторон, которые позволяют применять контекстно-зависимые решения в общей долгосрочной стратегии. В рамках LIME эта методология внедряется в двух пилотных проектах в Италии и Испании, где особое внимание уделяется препятствиям, с которыми сталкиваются TCN при доступе к профессиональному обучению и квалифицированным рабочим местам.

MIICT – Государственные службы миграции с поддержкой ICT – это разработку и внедрение инструментов и механизмов, которые решают проблему интеграции мигрантов посредством совместного создания улучшенных услуг с поддержкой ICT с мигрантами / беженцами, государственными службами, НПО и другими заинтересованными группами. Предлагается система базы данных под названием «IMMERSE» (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice), предназначенная для определения конкретных социально-культурных, экономических и правовых ситуаций мигрантов, которые затем будут переданы государственным органам. Эта система действует как брандмауэр, и видна только информация, относящаяся к конкретной задаче государственного органа, удаляя такие элементы, как пол, этническая принадлежность и возраст, тем самым способствуя помощи и уменьшая вероятность дискриминации и предвзятости.

FromMEtoEU – от вовлечения мигрантов до обновления Европы –  следует за идеей, что каждый мигрант должен рассматриваться как гражданин, и что каждый гражданин, имеющий потребности, должен также привносить идеи и инновационные подходы в общество, в котором он живет. Таким образом, цель проекта состоит в том, чтобы предоставить возможность европейским гражданам и сообществам мигрантов работать вместе, чтобы продвигать новую идею многокультурной Европы. Это также дает возможность выделить позитивный потенциал солидарности и максимизировать социальное сотрудничество между гражданами и мигрантами при одновременном снижении расизма и борьбе со скептицизмом в программах приема беженцев (и в евроскептицизме тоже).

EMEN – Сеть Предпринимательства Европейских Мигрантов, Осознавая, что содействие предпринимательству мигрантов является сложной задачей во всех странах Северной, Южной и Восточной / Центральной Европы, направлено на разработку, распространение и продвижение схем поддержки для индивидуальных предпринимателей-мигрантов, а также для социальных и инклюзивных предприятий, приносящих пользу мигрантам , таким образом, они обмениваются подходами и извлеченными уроками в области предпринимательской деятельности мигрантов между государственными администрациями, финансовыми организациями, оказывающими поддержку развитию бизнеса, социальными предприятиями, некоммерческими организациями, образовательными учреждениями и другими государственными и частными организациями, поддерживающими предпринимательство мигрантов в городе, на уровне региона и страны.
Следуя этим принципам, ALDA хочет продемонстрировать свою поддержку международному дню мигрантов, который празднует единство, участие и обмен между людьми со всего мира.

Как и каждый год, во Всемирный день беженцев, ООН предлагает новую тему, чтобы привлечь всех к этому событию, а в этом году –  это «Сделай шаг».

«Во всем мире общины, школы, предприятия, религиозные группы и люди из всех слоев общества делают большие и маленькие шаги в знак солидарности с беженцами. В этот Всемирный день беженцев мы призываем всех объединиться и сделать шаг навстречу беженцам».

Так что присоединяйтесь сегодня, двигайтесь и участвуйте в глобальной акции #StepWithRefugees!

Zakoračite sa izbeglicama, zakoračite sa ALDA-om

20. jun je Svetski dan izbeglica, međunarodno obeležavanje posvećeno podizanju svesti o situaciji izbeglica širom sveta. Dan je izabran na Generalnoj skupštini Ujedinjenih nacija u svojoj Rezoluciji 55/76, počevši od 2000. godine.
Među mnogim projektima ALDA-e, tema izbeglica i, šire gledano, migranata je relevantna i draga Udruženju:

Sa WEMIN-om (Osnaživanje i integracija žena migranata) fokus je na implementaciji i promovisanju pionirskog modela integracije za žene migrante i izbeglice svih uzrasta u uklјučenim zajednicama. Trenutno, programi za rešavanje socijalnih, obrazovnih i profesionalnih aspekata uklјučivanja u osam zemalјa širom Evropske unije odvijaju se i kroz razmenu iskustava između partnera i učesnika.

LIME: Radna integracija za zapošljavanje migranata (Intégration du travail pour l'emploi des migrants) ima za cilј promovisanje brzu integraciju mladih žena trećeg sveta – TCN, između 18 i 29 godina, u na tržištu rada, obezbeđivanjem primene metodologije “Migrantskog ekonomskog integracionog klastera – MEIC” na lokalnom nivou širom Evrope. Ovaj metod je inovativan i participativan pristup koji se zasniva na partnerstvu sa više zainteresovanih strana koje omogućava rešenja u zajedničkoj dugoročnoj strategiji. Kroz ovaj projekat, metodologija se implementira u dve pilot aktivnosti u Italiji i Španiji gde se posebna pažnja posvećuje preprekama sa kojima se građani susreću prilikom pristupa stručnom osposoblјavanju i poslovima.

MIICT – ICT Javne usluge za migracije cilј je da se dizajniraju, razviju i primene alati koji se odnose na izazove integracije migranata kroz zajedničko stvaranje bolјih IT usluga sa migrantima / izbeglicama, službama javnog sektora, nevladinim organizacijama i drugim interesnim grupama. Predložen je sistem baze podataka pod nazivom “IMMERSE” (Integration of Migrants MatchER SErvice), koji ima za cilј da obuhvati specifične socio-kulturne, ekonomske i pravne kontekste migranata koji se zatim dele sa javnim vlastima. Ovaj sistem funkcioniše kao zaštitni zid i vidlјive su samo informacije koje se odnose na specifične zadatke javnih vlasti, uklanjajući elemente kao što su pol, etnička pripadnost i starost, čime se promoviše inkluzija i smanjuje mogućnost diskriminacije i pristrasnosti.

FromMEtoEU: Ideja projekta je da se svaki migrant treba smatrati građaninom i da svaki građanin, ima potrebe, i da treba da doprinosi idejama i inovativnim pristupima u zajednici u kojoj živi. Stoga je cilј projekta da pruži mogućnosti građanima Evrope i migrantske zajednice da rade zajedno, kako bi promovisali novu ideju multikulturalne Evrope. Projekat takođe stavlja akcenat na pozitivan potencijal solidarnosti i uvećavanja društvene saradnje među građanima i migrantima uz smanjenje rasizma i borbu protiv skepticizma u programima prijema izbeglica (kao i Evroskepticizma).

Emen – Evropska Migrantska Preduzetnička Mreža, svesni da je promocija preduzetništva migranata izazov u svim severnim, južnim i istočnim / centralnim -evropskim zemalјama, projekat ima za cilј da razvije, deli i promoviše programe podrške za individualne preduzetnike migrante i za socijalna i inkluzivna preduzeća u kojima migranti imaju korist. Projekat dakle pokušava da podeli pristupe i naučene lekcije o preduzetništvu migranata između javnih uprava, podrške poslovnom razvoju i finansijskih organizacija, društvenih preduzeća, neprofitnih organizacija, obrazovnih institucija i drugih javnih i privatnih organizacija koje podržavaju poduzetništvo migranata na nivou grada, regiona i države.
Sledeći ove okvire, ALDA želi da pokaže svoju podršku međunarodnom danu koji slavi jedinstvo i angažman među lјudima iz celog sveta.

Kao i svake godine, za Svetski dan izbeglica, UN predlaže novu temu kako bi se svi uklјučili u ovaj događaj, a ovogodišnja tema je “Prvi korak”.

„Širom sveta, zajednice, škole, preduzeća, verske zajednice i lјudi iz svih sfera života preduzimaju velike i male korake u solidarnosti sa izbeglicama. Na ovaj Svetski dan izbeglica, pozivamo sve ljude da se udruže i naprave prvi korak sa izbeglicama.”
Pridružite se danas, pokrenite se i učestvujte u globalnom izazovu #StepWithRefugees!

 

قم بقطع خطوة مع اللاجئين, قم بقطع خطوة مع ألدا

يوافق تاريخ 20 جوان (حزيران) اليوم العالمي للاجئين, وهو اليوم الذي يتطلب جهودا دولية دؤوبة تخصص لنشر التوعية والتذكير بوضعية اللاجئين في كافة أنحاء العالم. تم اختيار هذا اليوم من قبل الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة, على أساس قرارها رقم 55.76, وذلك انطلاقا من سنة 2000. من بين المشاريع المختلفة التي تديرها ألدا,  يكتسي محور اللاجئين, وبشكل واسع, موضوع المهاجرين, أهمية خاصة حيث أنه يحتل أعلى المراتب على جدول أعمال المنظمة:

يهدف مشروع خدمات التمكين العمومية لفائدة المهاجرين في مجال تكنولوجيات المعلومات والاتصال (MIICT), إلى المساعدة على تصميم وتطوير ونشر الأدوات والوسائل الضرورية لمواجهة التحديات التي تحول دون تمكين المهاجرين من الاندماج في االمجتمع, وذلك من خلال الخلق المشترك لخدمات تمكين أفضل في مجال التكنولوجيات والاتصال بالشراكة مع المهاجرين/اللاجئين, والمسؤولين عن قطاع الخدمات العمومية, والمنظمات غير الحكومية والعديد من المجموعات الأخرى ذات المصلحة.  هناك قاعدة بيانات تعرف باسم إيمرس (IMMERSE) (دمج المهاجرين في خدمات ماتشار) الذي تم اقتراحه بهدف استغلال أمثل للخصوصيات الاجتماعية والثقافية والاقتصادية, وكذلك الأطر القانونية للمهاجرين لكي يتم تقاسمها لاحقا مع السلطات العمومية. يتم استعمال هذا النظام كجدار الحماية بحيث لا يتم استعمال سوى البيانات المطلوبة حول الخطة المعروضة حصريا أمام السلطات العمومية المعنية, وذلك بحذف كافة البيانات التي تخرج عن نطاق المهمة المعروضة, على غرار البيانات التي تخص النوع الاجتماعي والمجموعة الإثنية والسن, لكي يتمكن المعنيون من تعزيز عملية الإدماج والتخلص من خطر التمييز والمعايير الذاتية.

مشروع من انتداب المهاجرين إلى تحسين الوضع الأوروبي: يأتي مشروع من انتداب المهاجرين إلى تحسين الوضع الأوروبي كتكملة للفرضية الداعية إلى اعتبار كل مهاجر كمواطن وأن كل مواطن, له حاجياته, مطالب بتقديم أفكار ومقاربات مجددة لفائدة المجتمع الذي يعيش صلبه. وبالتالي, يهدف المشروع إلى توفير الفرص السانحة للمواطنين الأوروبيين ومجتمعات المهاجرين للعمل المشترك والسعي إلى تعزيز مفهوم جديد يخدم مصلحة أوروبا متعددة الثقافات. كما يمنح هذا المفهوم الفرصة لإبراز القدرات الإيجابية لروح التضامن واستغلال التعاون الاجتماعي على الوجه الأمثل بين كل من المواطنين والمهاجرين, مع السعي إلى تقليص مظاهر التمييز ومحاربة خطر التشكيك بواسطة البرامج التي يمكن تنظيمها بهدف استقبال المهاجرين والترحيب بهم (بدون أن ننسى مشكلة التشكيك في أوروبا).

أيمان (EMEN) – بعد إدراكها للتحدي الذي تمثله منظومة دعم ريادة الأعمال لدى المهاجرين, في بلدان شمال وجنوب وشرق ووسط أوروبا, تهدف شبكة ريادة الأعمال الأوروبية لفائدة المهاجرين تطوير وتقاسم ومساندة برامج الدعم المقدم لفائدة المهاجرين الأفراد من رواد الأعمال وكذلك لفائدة المهاجرين المنتفعين من خدمات المؤسسات الاجتماعية والشاملة. كما تسعى هذه الشبكة إلى تقاسم المقاربات والاستفادة من الدروس المستوعبة في مجال ريادة الأعمال لدى المهاجرين, سواء داخل أو بين كافة ألإدارات العمومية, أو لتعزيز منظومة التنمية التجارية ومؤازرة المنظمات الاقتصادية والمؤسسات التربوية, وكذلك المنظمات العمومية والخاصة الأخرى.

وعلى ضوء هذا الإطار الجديد, تعرب ألدا على استعدادها التام لتقديم كافة أشكال الدعم للجهود الرامية إلى تنظيم يوم عالمي يخصص للاحتفال بالوحدة والالتزام والتفاعل بين المواطنين من كافة أنحاء العالم وبدون أي استثناء أو اقصاء. تماما كما هو الشأن كل عام, بالنسبة لليوم العالمي لللاجئين, تم اقتراح محور جديد من قبل الأمم المتحدة لدمج كافة الأطراف الممكنة في هذه التظاهرة, مع التذكير أن المحور الذي تم اختياره لهذا العام هو “قطع خطوة”.

” في كافة أرجاء المعمورة, يتولى الأفراد في المجتمعات المحلية والمدارس والمؤسسات وصلب الجماعات الدينية كذلك, قطع الخطوات, كبيرة كانت أم صغيرة, على درب التضامن مع اللاجئين. وبالتالي’ نحن نناشد كافة الأطراف للمساهمة الفاعلة والحقيقية في هذه التظاهرة الدولية المخصصة للاحتفال باليوم العالمي لللاجئين وقطع خطوة إضافة وهامة على درب التعاون معهم”.

التحقوا بنا اليوم, تحركوا وساهموا في تظاهرة قطع خطوة مع اللاجئين لرفع التحدي الدولي الخاص بمسألة الهجرة.

Open Local Authority: Dnipro has the chance of receiving a European Quality Award

The European Association for Local Democracy (ALDA), in association with the Dnipropetrovsk Region Local Democracy Agency, with the support of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation announces the launch of the Dnipro project “Empowering Local Governments and Civil Society in Ukraine and Moldova through Participatory Democracy Tools”.

A press conference occurring on May 28th made its main goal clear: to promote sustainable development of the city and increase the level of participation of citizens in the adoption of management decisions at the local level.

“Dnipro, in its development, has its base on the principles of democracy, decentralization of powers, and self-organization. From 2016, our city is a member of the European Association of Local Democracy and continues to develop local self-government and improve the participation of citizens in the city’s decision-making and development. The Mayor, Boris Filatov, set the task of continuing last year’s policy of decentralization and maximizing the powers of the bodies of self-organization of the population. Along this promising direction, a cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation was established. The new project will be a continuation of this partnership and will make it possible to use the experience already acquired. The implementation of the project with the European Association of Local Democracy is an important step in improving city governance and identifying the potential for self-government development. It will help to conduct research to find out the probable problems in the system of local self-government and to apply new methods and means to resolve them”, said Artem Nedelko, director of the department of local self-government, internal and informational policy of the Dnipro city council.

During the first stage of the project, questionnaires, discussions, interviews with representatives of local authorities, public organizations and active citizens are conducted to determine the degree of openness of local authorities, the accessibility and ease of obtaining information for city residents about decisions of the city council, and the opportunities for citizens to influence management decisions at the local level.

“After the analysis, additional suggestions will be made. And during the second stage, experts from the European Association for Local Democracy (ALDA) will hold a series of training seminars on eliminating disadvantages and increasing the effectiveness of participatory democracy at the city level. Furthermore, recommendations will be prepared for the management of the city of Dnipro”, – said Angelika Pilipenko, Director of the Civil Society Agency of the Dnipropetrovsk Region.

As a result of the participation in the project, Dnipro can receive the European Quality Management Certificate. For the Council of Europe, this will be an indicator of the openness of local authorities to the city’s residents and the high efficiency of local self-government, as well as create additional opportunities for attracting new partners and funds for cooperation.

“I want to thank the Dnipro Municipal Council for being open to our proposal. The Dnipro City became one of the four pilot cities in the post-Soviet area, which have shown interest in this topic and now have a chance to receive this significant award. Therefore, the Dnipro Municipal Council and project organizers work closely together and are interested in promoting the results at the international level, “said Alexandru Coica, Co-ordinator of the European Association for Local Democracy (ALDA) Eastern Partnership”

As an introduction, Mr. Károly Simo, vice-mayor of Érd, gave a warm welcome speech during which he presented the main local authorities, how they are elected and their role in the city’s governance. In a first time, different civil viewpoints were introduced. Ms Kinga Joó, vice-president of The National Association of Large Families of Hungary for youth, introduced and analysed data regarding demography and family policies in Hungary and in the EU. Then, Ms Evelin Lázár presented many projects and activities promoted by youth self-government of Érd.

When I first came to Dublin my English level was good but I had difficulties to speak fluently or have a conversation with others. I knew that the only solution was PRACTICE. I started to do some online search to find English classes where I discovered WEMIN English Language & Communication class. Joining WEMIN English Language & Communication class was a relief for me, I could practice my English but also make friends, share experience and have a social life. I attended to several events organised by WEMIN such as International women Breakfast where I met interesting people. Thanks to this classes I feel that my English is way better, I made friends and I learnt a lot about the Irish culture. I could apply for a job and now I’m working and I’m fully integrated to the Irish society. Thank you WEMIN.

International Forum in Skopje furthering local democracy!

The International Forum “Partnership as key for Local Democracy – Rethinking the cooperation between local authorities and civil society” organised by the European Association for Local Democracy – ALDA Skopje took place on the 11th and 12th June 2019 at the Hotel “Best Western” in Skopje.

This international event gathered 80 participants representing local authorities, the civil society sector and international organisations from North Macedonia, the Balkans and the EU. The Forum has been a unique opportunity to exchange best practices and rethink the cooperation between local authorities and civil society.

Four different panels on good practices have been held during the event on various topics. The first session on effective partnerships between the civil society and the local authorities was moderated by Ivan Vejvoda from the Center for Democracy Foundation of Serbia. The second included panellists from various CSOs and tackled the issue of the support to civil society organisations. Katica Janeva from ALDA Skopje moderated the third round of discussion on the new and traditional forms of citizen participation. Finally, the participant had the chance to discuss international cooperation related aspects of local partnerships.

The main message that came across during the Forum was that civil society is crucial in the process of democratisation and is especially effective on the local level. Municipalities shared their positive results on cooperation with civil society organisation to support this premise and stimulate other local authorities to replicate it in their communities.

Another point that was agreed among participants was that in the current political climate in Europe civil society needs to readapt and reinvent itself because it has become a constitutional piece of the construction and maintenance of democracy. The decentralised process engaging a multi-stakeholder partnership and international cooperation were identified as the best way to achieve it.

The Forum was organised in the framework of the project “Civil society organisations for making local democracy work” supported by the European Union and the Central European Initiative (CEI) and implemented by ALDA Skopje, Association of Finance Officers of Local Governments & Public Enterprises Veles and European Movement North Macedonia.
