V4NIEM: Visegrad Countries National Integration Evaluation Mechanism

Jun 1, 2016

The V4NIEM (Visegrad Countries National Integration Evaluation Mechanism) and subseqent 2nd phase project V4NIEM 2020-2021 are part of a broader European project NIEM. These projects focus on longterm evaluation of integration policies (IPs) in V4 countries. The goal is to improve integration of migrants and refugees and beneficiaries of international protection (BIPs) through research, networking of stekeholders and common advocacy in V4 countries in order to enhance IPs and prevent maladaptation of newcomers and potential mutual aggression between migrants and majority. 

It builds on:

1) networking of experts in IPs by establishing of regular peer group meetings (National coalition) of stakeholders (NGOs, academia, public servants, etc.) in order to share experience and evaluate IPs in V4 countries

2) longterm evaluation of IPs based on outputs of regular peer group meetings and implementation of Integration Evaluation Tool (IET) results. The IET was developed by organizations Migration Policy Group and UNHCR and is being updated under the project NIEM

3) information and good practice sharing and exchange between V4 project partners

4) publication of Comparative analyses that summarize particular issues and provide recommendations for improvement of IPs
