Whole-COMM Toolbox: Local Strategies for Effective Migrant and Refugee Integration


This toolbox supports small and medium-sized towns and rural areas across Europe in developing inclusive and efficient integration policies for migrants, including refugees. It enables local level policymakers, local government officials, municipal departments, service providers, civil society organizations, and employment agencies to adopt local innovative measures and policies for the inclusion of migrants and refugees in line with EU and international standards.

The toolbox will help you with:

• Self-evaluation: Assess and monitor existing integration policies at the local level, critically assess their performance and identify their strengths and weaknesses.

• Self-reflection and Self-improvement: Use this toolbox as a planning tool to develop new strategies, policies and projects that embrace a comprehensive approach to integration.

The report is a part of the Whole-COMM project.
