After almost 5 years of implementation, the EU-funded project ADMin4ALL – Supporting social inclusion of vulnerable migrants in Europe comes to an end. With 33 localities in 7 EU member States engaged and over 1,000 local social service providers trained, ADMin4ALL is today a EU-wide community of cities committed to integration.

 

The final event will take stock of the work done to support local authorities across Europe in fostering the social inclusion of migrants. It will also offer an opportunity to look into the latest developments of EU migration and integration policy. Moreover, representatives from different EU cities will discuss the challenges faced and the good practices put in place to foster social cohesion, including in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. They will share their experience on countering discrimination in the access to local services, in engaging the private sector to boost migrants’ labour integration and making social services more inclusive.
