NIEM - procurement for researchers


Monday 17 February 2020 11:33

Since March 2017, ‘ANTIGONE - Information and Documentation Center on Racism, Ecology, Peace and Non Violence’ (ANTIGONE) is a partner of the European project “National Integration Evaluation Mechanism” (NIEM). NIEM is a six-year long transnational project which ends in September 2021, and aims to prepare key actors in the integration field in 15 EU Member States in order to better tackle current challenges and improve the integration outcomes of beneficiaries of international protection. Conflict situations tend to last longer and, currently, it takes on average 17 years before refugees fleeing war and conflict may have a chance to eventually return to their home country. Hence, the long-term integration of newly arrived beneficiaries of international protection is without alternative and presents an immediate challenge for European societies.

The Project Leader is the Foundation Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) (Poland) and the funding is from the European Union, Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).
