Zapojování občanské společnosti do integrace uprchlíků
Přijímání a přesídlování uprchlíků je ve většině evropských zemí historicky silně centralizované a patří do kompetencí vlád. Uprchlická krize v letech 2015/16 napnula kapacity azylových systémů některých zemí k prasknutí. Živelně rašící grassrootové aktivity sehrály klíčovou roli v distribuci materiální pomoci i lidské podpory nově příchozím, což mezi tvůrci politik zažehlo debatu o tom, co vše vlastně lze z intenzivnějšího zapojování občanské společnosti do integračního procesu vytěžit. Policy brief zpracovaný thinktankem Migration Policy Institute zkoumá široké spektrum přístupů k integraci uprchlíků včetně komunitního a soukromého financování integračních aktivit. Také se vypořádává se třemi typy problémů, kterým občanský sektor i vlády při jejich implementaci čelí:
1. Jak zachovat kvalitu integrační aktivity při tlaku na její rychlou implementaci?
2. Jak mají vládní orgány tyto aktivity supervidovat a neznechutit přitom komunitní leadery?
3. Jak kultivovat spolupráci všech zúčastněných stran?
Výzkumné středisko bude sledovat postoje evropské veřejnosti k migraci
V srpnu bylo v Bruselu založeno výzkumné středisko Observatory of Public Attitudes to Migration (OPAM), zaměřené na postoje Evropanů k migraci. Cílem OPAM je sledovat evropské, národní i regionálně specifické trendy související s postoji veřejnosti k migraci a zpřístupňovat je tvůrcům politik, akademikům i široké veřejnosti.
Inkluzivní vzdělávání odstraňuje segregaci ve školách
Komisař Rady Evropy pro lidská práva počátkem září zveřejnil position paper, který analyzuje příčiny segregace dětí-cizinců ve školách. Ukazuje se, že tyto děti často chodí do škol s neproporcionálně vysokou koncentrací dětí-cizinců. Učitelé zde sice mají relativně volnou ruku, zároveň však čelí absenci prostředků či nástrojů pro práci se specifickými vzdělávacími potřebami těchto žáků. Dokument identifikuje hlavní příčiny segregace dětí-cizinců, popisuje klíčové principy inkluzivního vzdělávání a shrnuje doporučení pro jeho další rozvoj.

Fighting school segregation in Europe through inclusive education
The Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights has published a position paper arguing for an inclusive education in Europe. The document analyses the causes of school segregation experienced by children with a refugee or migrant background across Europe, highlighting that they often are taught in schools with a disproportionately high presence of migrant pupils. It also contains a set of recommendations, including the legal prohibition of discrimination, desegregation strategies and awareness raising campaigns. Find out more
The European Web Site on Integration (EWSI) has been reporting on the role of school education in the integration of foreign children and those with an immigrant background since its launch in 2009.
