Funding for integration projects

Nordic flags

Applications for project funding are now welcome under the Nordic Council of Ministers’ co-operation programme for the integration of refugees and immigrants.

 

In spring 2016, the ministers for Nordic co-operation decided to make the integration of refugees and immigrants a top priority. A co-operation programme has now been adopted and a pool of money earmarked for projects in all of the Nordic countries.

 

Purpose

The purpose of the programme is to support national efforts by bolstering Nordic co-operation on the integration of refugees and immigrants, by encouraging the countries to share experiences and by generating new knowledge.

 

The new programme outlines a series of milestones on the way to achieving this overall objective:

 

  • Spreading and sharing Nordic knowledge and experiences of integration

 

  • Bringing together the official agencies and stakeholders in the Nordic countries who deal with integration, including ministries, boards, official agencies, local authorities, regional authorities, practitioners, experts and civil society

 

  • Supporting ongoing integration work in the Nordic countries.

 

As part of the co-operation programme, the Nordic institution Nordregio will help set up a knowledge and information unit at the Nordic Welfare Centre, another Nordic institution in Stockholm. The programme also includes a major research project on integration and closer political co-operation in the Nordic Council of Ministers on integration issues.
