UNINTEGRA

UNINTEGRA is a comprehensive initiative addressed to provide support to stepwise integration of refugee/asylum seekers at the host society since the early stage.

A pre-departure intervention is foreseen for providing refugees in Greece applying for relocation with emotional recovery, socio-educational support and self-empowerment, with special focus on minors and women, preparing them for resettlement.
Training professionals, developing educational activities on ground and providing the refugee community with self-management tools will be core actions that aim at reaching 500 stagiaires and 300 professionals (social workers, educators...) trained and a direct impact on more than one thousand refugees that will be helped to re-start their lives and successfully face their immediate future.
A post-arrival intervention is also considered, focusing on training a task-force of professionals to cover refugee needs locally resettled as well as putting the emphasis on enhancing capacity building of refugees themselves.
This model of intervention aims at impacting a direct target of 30 trained refugees and 30 professionals with a widespread impact on the general refugee community of the targeted areas as a result of the multiplier effect and the role of mentors that trained refugees are expected to play at short-term.
This project will also support inclusion of third-country nationals in society at academic level by designing a protocol of validation of competences that can favour their access to Higher Education studies in the EU at medium term and by fostering research and exchange of knowledge about barriers and facilitators for integration into society, in particular, of the most vulnerable groups, women and children.
At this regard, impact is expected at regulatory level providing positive influence in policy guidelines. Interaction of refugees with local community will also be promoted aiming at combating stereotypes and fostering positive migration perception in the hosting community.
