MPG designs and implements comparative research and projects with stakeholders on comprehensive migrant integration and diversity. This work largely focuses on comparisons of policies and practices at national, regional and local level, monitoring compliance with international/EU legal standards and analysis of the impact of policies on integration outcomes.
The main upcoming project in MPG’s applied research is SPRING, a multiannual Horizon2020 project which will develop a toolbox for communities of practices working on integration. It will support practitioners in identifying and accessing validated information on sustainable practices of integration, including information on their impacts and transferability. The project aims to empower practitioners to implement high-quality measures and policies; to better cooperate in (transnational) networks and to influence integration policy-making at various levels.
MPG’s engagement in SPRING is a next step to expand its role as a key European-wide convenor of integration actors and facilitator of know-how exchange. Working on SPRING as MPG’s project leader will mean to engage with actors from civil society organisations, public authorities and services, voluntary initiatives, the private sector, etc. The specific tasks of the policy analyst in the SPRING project will relate to the development of the validation grid based on criteria for good practices, as well as the analysis of transferability, adaptation and upscaling. Other assignments of the policy analyst will relate to projects on comparative research of refugee integration policies (NIEM, AMIF project) and on integration policies for small/medium-sized towns and rural areas (Whole-Comm, H2020 project).
