Promoting long-term integration of young refugees into the community

Acknowledging the current need to reinforce refugee integration as a European priority (following EU Action Plan for Integration and Inclusion 2021-2027), REFUGIN proposes a holistic and dual approach to promote young refugees’ integration. The project’s bidirectional process requires the involvement of civil society and young refugees themselves.

For this, REFUGIN aims to foment civil society’s synergies towards refugee integration by capacitating key non-governmental actors, focusing on educational and NGOs’ practitioners. The project aims to holistically enhance their know-how whilst simultaneously building the capabilities of young refugees.

Additionally, REFUGIN strives for a broader impact on educational and communitarian settings. Through innovative methodology and advanced activities, the project will work towards more tolerant, inclusive and inter-culturally aware societies, thus strengthening EU core values.
