The European Union has launched its new Action Plan on Integration and Inclusion – a strategy which will influence policy and funding on integration for at least the next seven years. This new plan takes on board a number of the IRC’s recommendations. These include providing funding for projects and supporting service providers that help refugees overcome obstacles to integration, including through building partnerships with local communities and sharing best practices and resources.

The latest article by the International Rescue Committee presents the views of several leading experts on European integration, including Mariana Stoyanova of the Bulgarian Red Cross and Desislava Petkova of Caritas Sofia.
