The project seeks to analyze social and cultural integration of third country nationals on the local level while using the method of case studies of three selected localities. The methodolgy draws on anthropological research.
Apart from a detailed analysis of social and cultural integration of third country nationals the project puts emphasis on a viable practical application of the research findings on the local level.
Based on the research findings the project team will be able to describe the status quo with respect to cultural and social integration of foreigners on the local level and will draft clear proposals of improvement.
Last but not least, the project foresees awareness raising and capacity building of local stakeholders enabling them to formulate their own solid strategies facilitating integration of foreigners in local communities.
