Our Focus

Municipal integration and participation

The municipality is the central place where people of different cultures or religions live together. Here, local governments and organizations of people with a migration history can shape their environment together. We support municipalities and their leaders in specifically placing this topic on the agenda, (further) developing strategies for good coexistence in the immigration society and involving different sectors and social groups. This is complemented by customized qualification programs as well as exchange and cooperation between municipalities.

Equal participation and balancing of interests

For a good coexistence in the immigration society, people with a migration history must be acknowledged with their concerns and abilities and be able to participate on an equal basis. We therefore promote organizations of migrant civil society through qualification and networking. The aim is to strengthen their self-efficacy, representation and capacity for action and resilience. Established organizations and institutions are also supported in contributing to this through solidarity-based action.
