3. Evaluation of the pilot projects, the impacts on the target groups, the relevance of the activities on integration. Evaluation of behavioral changes and efficacy of the ISF determined by pilot interventions on target groups.

4. Development of an exploitation plan. Define a strategy, identify opportunities and facilitate synergies for the exploitation of INTEgreat results and outcomes for the benefit of end users and stakeholders.

Country Reports

Integration Strategy Framework (ISF) and Guidelines

Updated Version INTEgreat ISF Checklists – February 2024

The Integration Strategy Framework Checklists are a practical and user-friendly tool, designed to verify the consistency of the pilots carried out within the INTEgreat project and according to its principles. This second version of the Checklists is the result of the experience lived, reflected upon and shared by the partners during the pilot projects; therefore, it is the consequence of moving from theory to practice. They are designed for use beyond the INTEgreat pilot projects, thus, they can be replicated and utilized for other projects. It is also important to emphasize that the term ‘migrant’ is used to generically refer to INTEgreat’s target group, i.e. newly arrived migrants (men, women, families and LGBTQIA+ persons) from 2015 who are asylum seekers, resettled refugees, refugees with international protection or subsidiary protection status, vulnerable refugees, or those at risk of social exclusion.

The Checklists are available for use by anyone preparing to build actions or projects for the integration of migrants, so they can be considered adaptable and non-exhaustive, given the vast landscape involving these types of interventions.
