Cities’ and municipalities’ importance and role in refugee and migration increasingly receives more attention. City representatives also confidently claim a larger say in the formulation of asylum, migration and integration policies. At the same time, civil society in Europe’s cities and municipalities demand that refugee rights are supported and protected and is making resources available to welcome refugees at the local level.

We want to offer a networking and exchange platform on municipal refugee reception and integration. For this purpose, we provide background research and policy papers as well as organize joint networking meetings.
