MIICT 2nd Policy brief
The MIICT (ICT-enabled public services for migration) project (https://www.miict.eu ) works towards the development of ICT-enabled solutions and toolkits to enhance migrant’s integration. It also proposes inclusion policies by public administrations and the civil society, promoting in parallel discussions with experts in the field of migration, aiming not only to positively influence existing policies but also to propose new recommendations relevant to migrant integration.
The aim of this 2nd MIICT Policy Brief is to present further recommendations on existing policies around migration issues, proposing in that way certain issues that must be taken into consideration. It capitalises on the findings from the MIICT 1 stPolicy Brief (March 2020), as well as on the discussions of the Joint Migration
Policy Roundtable, a 3-day online webinar among six EU funded projects which worked towards the development of ICT-enabled solutions and toolkits for the implementation of inclusion policies by public administrations and the civil society and produced a Joint Migration policy Whitepaper. The MIICT-specific policy recommendations and reflections were raised during the MIICT policy roundtable discussions that took place during January 2021. Consortium partners engaged themselves in discussing, all the proposed policies of the whitepaper, prioritizing them in accordance with the core objectives of MIICT project, as well as to the reality of the pilot countries (Cyprus, Italy, and Spain). The discussed issues highlighted the main obstacles/challenges that need to be taken into consideration for a smooth and accurate policy application and proposed further recommendations aligned with encountered challenges.
This policy brief is aimed at decision makers, lobbying groups, and other interest groups. It outlines and elucidates key findings that can contribute to the development of future policies. The recommendations will also feed into future Joint Policy Development roundtables, where further policies will be shaped, taking into consideration to promote in the best way possible the interests of the migrants, the public service providers, as well as the relevant local host communities.
