The LIME project has released a toolkit and an advocacy document!

Migration is a crucial issue of both European Union and Member States’ political agendas since it concerns the governance of the integration processes affecting social cohesion of the European multicultural society. 

This idea is the spirit of the LIME project – a project that involves 7 partners from France, Italy and Spain, which aims to promote and foster the swift integration of third country nationals into the labour market by implementing the Migrants Economic Integration Cluster – MEIC model all over Europe.

The Migrants Economic Integration Cluster – MEIC methodology is an innovative and participatory approach based on the creation of a partnership of socio-economic multi-stakeholders, including public and private actors.

After 2 years of activities in the two Pilot Action in Rome and Madrid, the LIME project has finally released a Toolkit for designing cluster interventions

The purpose of the toolkit and more especially the section 3 “How to activate and consolidate the MEIC Approach: some operational suggestions”, is to give you the basics of this new methodology: how to engage institutional and private stakeholders, how to manage the cluster to respond to specific needs, how to ensure the long term sustainability in the context, and much more! 

The LIME project has also developed an EU recommendation paper – “Implement in cluster: a new form of governance to empower social capital of local networks for Third Country Nationals’ labour inclusion.” This second document addresses several recommendations from the LIME project in order to foster the migrants’ labour inclusion, such as promoting the involvement of beneficiaries in the co-design of labour inclusion programs at the local level, recognizing the qualification recognition procedures for third country nationals, etc.

You can read it in English, Italian and Spanish.
