EU Belong Project
The expected impact of the project is to improve migrants’ socio-economic inclusion and sense of belonging through the development of Regional inclusion strategies based on a strong intercultural approach. In particular, the project will strengthen the capacity of 11 European Regions and their cooperation with public and private stakeholders, thus durably supporting their role as key-players for the successful inclusion of Third Country Nationals (TNCs). EU Belong runs from January 2022 to December 2024. The Donegal participants are Donegal Intercultural Platform (Advisory Committee member) and Project partner – Donegal County Council.
The project will support the adoption of innovative and pioneering regional inclusion strategies, based on a multi-level and multi-stakeholder framework that, for the first time, applies the intercultural approach to Regions as a key-player for the successful inclusion of TCNs.
It will strengthen the capacity of 11 European Regions and their cooperation with local authorities and other public and private stakeholders to design and adopt regional integration strategies with the aim of designing and adopting regional inclusion strategies able to encompass different aspects of the socio-economic inclusion of TCNs, especially those in vulnerable situations (women, children and victims of discrimination).
