4th European Integration Forum - Anti-discrimination, social inclusion and the integration modules

6/7th December 2010,
Brussels, Belgium
- EIF forum

Organiser: European Commission, European Economic and Social Committee

EIF logoThe “two-way integration process” enshrined in the EU’s Common Basic Principles of Integration was at the heart of this consultative civil society meeting. Key questions discussed were: How can national policies be improved through the consultation of immigrants? Which integration tools should be prioritised to enhance commitment by the 'host society'?

The Platform for Intercultural Europe was actively represented by its Steering Group member Tarafa Baghajati who acted as rapporteur for one of four round tables and said: “The Platform for Intercultural Europe welcomes the fact that the European Commission recognises the importance of integration policy for the realisation of the 2020 Agenda. Integration policy should be entirely devolved from security policy. Key to its success is coordination between the local, national and European levels – this is aided by the European Integration Forum.”
