A Transnational Strategy for Social Innovation in the Integration of Non-EU Nationals
The number of people willing to settle and take up employment on the territory of the European Union has increased in recent years (especially in 2022) which placed the EU’s migration policy in the focus of public interest. This publication "A Transnational Strategy for Social Innovation in the Integration of Non-EU Nationals" has been designed to promote social innovations approaches that enable effective integration of non-EU nationals in rural areas by enhancing skills and knowledge of the stakeholders in the spheres of employment and by driving social integration of non-EU nationals.
This book contains a description of feasible ideas for integration of non-EU nationals with EU nationals with specific emphasis on the 9 rural areas identified in the ARRIVAL REGIONS Project. This Strategy has been written for the Arrival Regions Project carried out as a part of the “European Territorial Cooperation Program – Interreg VB Central Europe 2014-2020” co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. Since this publication is based on a description of issues related to the specifics of social innovations implementation and a series of practical case studies, this publication can be a significant help on many levels in supporting migrants in joining the life of the EU community.
The authors therefore hope that this book intended for a wide audience, representatives of local authorities, entrepreneurs and representatives of organizations supporting business as well as science representatives will be an interesting and inspiring publication.
