Newsletter Evropského integračního portálu - duben
Níže naleznete aktuální newsletter Evropského integračního portálu. Z obsahu upozorňujeme na následující informace:
Uplynulé dva měsíce pracovala Evropská komise na nástroji, který vám umožní sledovat postup při implementaci evropského Akčního plánu pro integraci. Díky jeho přehlednému designu rychle získáte přehled o tom, jaké kroky EU aktuálně v podpoře integraci cizinců podniká a proč. Monitorovací nástroj bude spuštěn za několik dní, nicméně už teď se níže v newsletteru můžete podívat, jak bude vypadat.
Web EWSI brzy dostane další face-lift: záložku EU´s work rozdělíme do 2 podsekcí: první bude shrnovat vývoj evropské integrační politiky v uplynulých dvou dekádách, druhá bude věnována evropským platformám pro vzájemné učení o problematice integrace cizinců.
EU: Cizinci jsou nadále znevýhodněni ve všech aspektech bydlení
Eurostat na základě dat z roku 2015 z celé EU minulý týden aktualizoval integrační statistiky. Ukazuje se, že v oblasti bydlení, která je klíčovou součástí evropských indikátorů integrace (EU Zaragoza indicators), nedošlo oproti předchozímu období k téměř žádnému zlepšení. Zatímco 70,5 % domácí populace ve věku 20-64 let žije ve vlastním, u cizinců se jedná pouze o 32.1 %. V přelidněných domácnostech žije 22,2 % cizinců (v některých zemích jako Maďarsko či Řecko až 50 %) ale pouze 16,5 % domácího obyvatelstva. Rovněž podíl nákladů na bydlení na celkovém příjmu domácnosti je u cizinců výrazně nepříznivější než u domácí populace: v celoevropském měřítku vynakládá na bydlení více než 40 % příjmů domácnosti čtvrtina cizinců, avšak pouze desetina domácího obyvatelstva.

E-Newsletter 25 April 2017 / Special Edition
For the past 2 months, we have been compiling information and developing a tool that will empower you to monitor the progress in the implementation of the Commission's Action Plan on Integration. The dashboard design will provide an up-to-date overview of what the EU is currently doing to foster migrant integration, while still allowing users to find out more about each action or the goal it serves. The monitoring tool will be released in the coming days but here is already a sneak peek for you.
We also seized the opportunity to give a face-lift to the entire EU tab by introducing 2 new subsections. The first one will tell the story of how the EU has been shaping the integration of Third Country Nationals in Europe for the last 2 decades and the second one will be dedicated to European mutual learning platforms on migrant integration. Meanwhile, take one last look at the current EU section.
The revamping the EU tab is the second major step in a series of changes that started last year with the simplification of the homepage.
