From Emergency to a Joint Future.
Migration increasingly becomes a challenge for Europe. The so-called “crisis” is primarily a crisis of
deficient migration management. It creates political conflicts on the transnational, national and on the
local level. Tailoring integration strategies to local contexts while maintaining a coherent European
approach is particularly challenging.
Local communities are the first to deal systematically with incoming migrants. Migrants’ experiences at
local levels determine their long-term integration. However, they play a limited role in related policy
debates and decision-making.
The “European Cities Network on Migration” aims at strengthening migration management along liberal
principles through a transnational network of local communities. Local community
stakeholders cooperate to share experiences and practices regarding the integration of migrants and
they develop inclusive, sustainable common policies based on European principles and carry these to
the European level.
In cooperation with Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, Istanbul.
