SHaring Actions for Participation and Empowerment of migrant communities and LAs
AT A GLANCE
The SHAPE project – SHaring Actions for the Participation and Empowerment of migrant communities and Local Authorities – funded by the European fund AMIF aims to foster the participation of people with a migratory background in democratic processes and in the design and implementation of integration policies at local, national and European level.
The action targets 3 states, so-called border states Italy, Hungary and Croatia, where public opinion appears particularly negative towards migrants and 2 leading states regarding migrants’ participation in the democratic process, Germany and Portugal.
- Strengthen integration policies and promote dialogue between local authorities and migrant communities;
-Bring together citizens with a migratory background, local authorities and policy-makers to co-design pilot projects aimed at triggering a participatory process at the local level, while at the same time creating a structured and formalised method of consultation for local policies in different fields;
- Raise citizens’ awareness in Italy, Hungary, Croatia, Germany and Portugal about the positive contribution of migrant communities to EU societies.
