Gap Analysis in book-format

Recommendations

Recommendations in terms of programmes and policies:

  • Concentration on cooperation with long term experienced organisations would be more valuable for the target group than putting projects under the constraints of annual eligibility periods of funding programmes (AT2).
  • To reach appropriate effects the political framework conditions should be transparent and stable for a couple of years (IT3).
  • The time constraints for refugees regarding working permission should be extended, because integration into labour market is a very time-consuming process (DE2).
  • There should be a common understanding that the non-recognition of existing qualifications will lead to disproportionally high exposures to downgrading competences among migrants (AT1).
  • Projects need an acceptance of migration and a general positive empathy in society to sustain positive effects. Projects should try to challenge and influence policy to create such an environment of equality and diversity (UK2).
