UNINTEGRA aims at efficiently managing immigrant populations while responding to the needs of those in need protection, at two levels: first, by directly working with new arrivals to address basic needs of inclusion, in conjunction with fostering receptive attitudes in target communities, and secondly, by establishing a normative framework in each host community.

At a more specific level, we aim at:

  • Acting as an early intervention stage in the migration process by providing refugees in refugee sites and centers with the psychological, emotional and educational resources necessary to empower them (with special emphasis on youth, young mothers and women) in addressing and processing challenges related to relocation.
  • Enhancing the opportunities and capacity building of refugees by offering them and the professionals in the host communities with specific training opportunities.
  • Facilitating the relocation process by providing follow-up support in conjunction with assisting institutional and social sectors in successfully facing the challenges often associated with cultural, social and regulatory integration.
  • Encouraging the social and economic participation of refugees from third countries in the host community through measures designed to eliminate stereotypes in these communities, paving the way to combat cultural and racial segregation and social exclusion.
  • Fostering academic integration of refugees at Higher Educational level.
