MPG is pleased to announce the launch of two tools that are key to addressing the gaps in integration policy evaluation at the regional level – the MIPEX-Regions (MIPEX-R) webpage and Integration Lab database and map. These tools have been developed in the framework on the EC-funded the Regions for Migrants & Refugees Integration (REGIN) project.
A common evidence-based framework at the regional level
MIPEX-R represents an adaptation of the Migration Integration Policy Index (MIPEX), moving beyond the nation-state paradigm towards a more subnational focus on migrant integration. On the MIPEX-R webpage, the results for policy indicators for the six REGIN project partners (Azores, Campania, Catalonia, Murcia, Puglia and Skåne), are currently available related to the policy cycle, governance and integration measures for third country nationals (TCN) and beneficiaries of international protection (BIP).
Good practices, benchmarks, monitoring and evaluation
The Integration Lab database and map is designed to be a mutual learning tool to share experiences on migrant integration at the regional level. It highlights, for each practice, the lessons learnt and tips for transferability. In each practice, the contribution of the regional authority, either directly or indirectly through social actors, is emphasised.
Regions and their stakeholders interested in proposing their own examples to be featured on the Integration Lab are welcome to fill-in the template and survey questionnaire – developed as part of the REGIN Project and available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Swedish.
