Fostering political participation and policy involvement of migrants on 9 Central and Eastern EU countries

A new project started in 2013 November. The EU Integration Fund financed activity is aiming to increase electoral participation of immigrants – to make sure that immigrants with permanent resident permits have the possibility to be active in political life at local and regional level, and on the other hand that mainstream politics is not xenophobic and completely ignoring interests of the large part of population.

We would also increase inclusion of immigrants in making decisions affecting them via participation in municipal and governmental advisory bodies – to make sure that decisions on local and national level affecting immigrants consider their view and problems communicated via advisory bodies on local and national level.
