The Bulgarian Council on Refugees and Migrants and the Multi Kulti Collective presented their new project the National Integration Evaluation Mechanism (NIEM) on 13 December 2016 in Sofia. NIEM is a six-year long transnational project which aims to prepare key actors in the integration field in 15 EU Member States to better face the current challenges and improve the integration outcomes of beneficiaries of international protection. NIEM will establish a mechanism for a biennial, comprehensive evaluation of the integration of beneficiaries of international protection to provide evidence on gaps in integration standards, identify promising practices and evaluate the effects of legislative and policy changes.
