Working Together for Local Integration of Migrants and Refugees in Rome

image of Working Together for Local Integration of Migrants and Refugees in Rome

This report focuses on the local level integration of migrants in Rome, and provides information on the national framework for integration in Italy. While the study assumes that local authorities are at the forefront of migrant integration – providing information and essential services, ensuring access to education and the labour market, overcoming the barriers for full inclusion in the host society, and managing conflicts – local authorities are not alone. This report stresses the importance of multi-level governance of migrant integration, highlighting the key role of third sector enterprises, NGOs, business, faith-based organisations and unions. It identifies and shares selected local actions and governance practices to manage the short- and long-term effects of migration flows, and provides an international comparative of practices implemented by other EU cities, highlighting the most effective measures and lessons learned.

The Checklist for public action to migrant integration at the local level applied to the city of Rome

Chapter 1 gives a description of the actions, policy framework and governance mechanisms for migrants and refugees inclusion in Rome. The chapter is structured following the Checklist for public action to migrant integration at the local level, as included in the Synthesis Report “Working Together for Local Integration of Migrants and Refugees” (OECD, 2018). The checklist comprises a list of 12 key evidence-based objectives that can be used by policy makers and practitioners in the development and implementation of migrant integration programmes, at local, regional, national and international levels. This checklist highlights for the first-time a common framework to describe a holistic territorial approach to inclusion across contexts that have very different institutional and socio-economic characteristics. This innovative tool has been elaborated by the OECD as part of the larger study on supported by the European Commission, Directorate General for regional and urban policies.
