Over 30 participants took part in the first Sofia Integration Audit, held in the framework of INTEGRA project funded by EC’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund. Participants - representatives of Sofia Municipality, NGOs, third country nationals, law enforcement institutions, academia and schools - conducted a self-assessment of Sofia practices to integrate third country nationals and migrants. On May 16, 2018, in small groups, they toured the city and visited neighbourhoods where migrants gather, live and work, to assess the migrant friendly urban features and the missing, or inefficient integration policies of Sofia. Two instruments were used: checklists and photovoice - documenting achievements and shortages with digital photos. The photos and the comments to them can be seen in the Photovoice menu. The findings of the photovoice and checklists, together with desk research and focus group results, will be incorporated in Sofia City Integration Audit Report later this year.
