Integration Lab

The Integration Lab Database and Map is designed to be a mutual learning instrument to share experiences on migrant integration at regional level, highlighting 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.

The REGIN evaluation framework highlights for each practice inspiring elements and room for improvement focusing on 7 crucial aspects of migrant integration at subnational level:

  • Communication
  • Inclusion
  • Innovation
  • Multi-Level Governance
  • Multi-Stakeholder Approach
  • Monitoring & Evaluation
  • Sustainability

When clicking on a region featured on the map, a regional information panel provides a link to the MIPEX-R results when available, thanks to the interrelation between the REGIN Integration Lab and the MIPEX-R webpage. This section also shows an overview of the region’s context with regional statistical data and their sources when available, including:

  • the region’s overall population;
  • the number of non-EU inhabitants in the region
  • unemployment rates for the overall population, non-EU nationals and female non-EU nationals;
  • the rates of Young people Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) for nationals, non-EU nationals and female non-EU nationals;
  • the rate of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion in the region;
  • and the region’s Urban – rural typology.

Furthermore, as part of the REGIN Integration Lab, each partner region developed an integration action focused on an area or dimension identified through the integration indicators, except Skåne that implements a specific innovative action focusing on health communication. This provides an opportunity to test innovative practices to promote social inclusion and provide lessons learnt that will be added on the Integration Lab Database and Map.

How to contribute

Fill-in our template and share examples of regional integration practices. You may complete the information in the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Portuguese and Swedish. You may also refer to our guidelines and glossary to facilitate the sharing of relevant information.

As the database aims to be a tool for mutual learning and sharing with a focus on innovative practices, challenges faced and lessons learnt, we are particularly interested in reading in your contributions about how you addressed concrete issues faced as part of integration practices at regional level and the solutions you found to overcome them.

Complete the survey questionnaire which will help our team of researchers to analyse and categorise the practice for the database.
