Development of Integration Indicators at an EU Level
To further progress the work on indicators, the Commission appointed a consortium of the European Service Network and the Migration Policy Group to conduct a project on “Indicators of Immigrant Integration”. This study will analyse the extent the various integration realities in the EU Member States are affected by the different integration and migration policies, immigrant populations and general contexts and policies. It will involve the analysis of the data presented by Eurostat in 2011 in the light of the national context in each Member State, an assessment of the relevance of the proposed indicators and the development of a system for monitoring the results of integration policies. The research will be co-ordinated by the Migration Policy Group along with a research team at the Free University of Brussels and a researcher at the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) in Vienna. The outputs will include an analysis report, an assessment report and a monitoring proposal.
As part of this project, three expert seminars were held in 2012 focussing on thematic areas -one in Berlin on the theme of employment indicators (25th-26th June 2012), one in Budapest on the theme of education (17-18 September 2012), one in Lisbon on the theme of social inclusion and active citizenship (November 2012).
The final report of the project, entitled "Using EU Indicators of Immigrant Integration" was published in July 2013 and is available here.
