REGIN will implement an innovative toolkit for regional governments, through capacity-building for key stakeholders in receiving communities and tailored training for regional staff to support them in strengthening integration services. An evaluation framework will be developed and tested on targeted actions conducted in the pilot regions.
REGIN will develop an evaluation framework to be used to identify practices on migrant integration. Based on an analysis of collected regional practices, we will define a set of criteria that really help to understand why a practice could be considered a good one, or which are the limitations to understand why it fails.
The main goal is to adapt the OECD’s DAC Evaluation Criteria (Relevance, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Impact, Sustainability) to integration policies and actions. These evaluation criteria will be used to identify and filter experiences in a database and map of regional practices.
At the end of the project, REGIN will also produce a Catalogue of Innovative Actions linked to the evaluation framework.
Capacity building can increase knowledge and awareness, encourage collaborative action and help to sustain long-term commitment.
In the context of REGIN, it can also strengthen regional networking, build support, avoid potential controversy and benefit migrants and refugees, as well as the hosting communities in fostering social integration and inclusion.
Community leaders and other stakeholders who are knowledgeable about migrant integration can encourage greater community involvement and help to lay the foundation for actions and programmes.
REGIN aims to apply a systematic approach to capacity building so regional authorities can:
guarantee that all stakeholders are operating from a common base of knowledge;
provide stakeholders with the knowledge and skills to appropriately and effectively engage with migrant and refugee integration;
ensure that stakeholders are providing correct and accurate information to their communities or constituencies;
combat misperceptions that stakeholders may have on migrant integration;
foster a sense of collective ownership and to strengthen the capacity of regional authorities to work together with regional stakeholders.
We will design, plan and facilitate capacity-building activities for a diverse range of stakeholders and produce a Guideline Document on Stakeholder Capacity Building.
Regional authorities recognise the importance of human resource development as a means towards efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of public services, including migrant integration.
In order to maintain and enhance the momentum towards greater knowledge, REGIN aims to pursue guidelines for upgrading staff competencies, knowledge, skills and attitude, with the aim of addressing identified performance gaps on migrant integration.
The expected result of this activity is a set of Training Guidelines to provide public service employees with a clear understanding of migrant integration, and the incorporation of diversity as a cross-cutting issue in public services.
