Alliance of Civilization : Migration and Integration (MI) Clearinghouse


Migration and integration policies play an essential role in helping to improve understanding and mutual respect among diverse cultures.
To support this process, the Alliance of Civilizations developped a Migration and Integration Clearinghouse which focuses on three different yet inter-related policy areas that are the most productive in terms of social cohesion and full integration of migrants.
These three policy areas are:
a. Socio-Economic Integration area (covering issues such as access to emplyment and entrepreneurial opportunities, housing, health and education)
b. Legal and Political Integration area (such as the opportunities for political participation and empowerment, anti-discrimination laws)
c. Cultural Integration (such as public perceptions and attitudes toward immigrants, acceptance/tolerance of cultural diversity both among "host societies" and among "immigrant communities" and harmonious daily interaction).
Since migration and integration policies and practices involve the participation of national and local governments as well as civil society (including NGOs and the academic sectors), as well as international organizations such as the International Organization of Migration (IOM) and regional strucutres such as the European Union and other regional organizations that have developped policy on these issues - our emphasis is on the policy inputs and ouputs from these organizations.
The web-based clearinghouse features approaches, guidelines, policy and academic resources, as well as links to associations/organizations and institutions working on the field of Migration and Integration. The Migration and Integration Clearinghouse works through a network of partner organizations which include universities, other UN and intergovernmental organizations and civil societies organizations.
