Description from initiative site: Diversity, migration and integration have never before been such high-profile issues in Irish society. Internationally migration is the hot topic of the day, and how we as a society respond to immigration and new communities has the crucial benefit of being completely win-win if handled correctly.
This is why in 2017 the Immigrant Council of Ireland established the Integration Hub, with a focus on promoting political participation and combating racism. The Integration Hub is funded under the EU Asylum Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) via the Department of Justice and Equality.
Through the Immigrant Council’s migrant integration programmes, newcomers to Ireland are encouraged to connect with one another and their local communities to bring about positive changes and fulfil their potential.
