NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO SHARE THE INTEGRA EXPERIENCE ON MIGRANT INTEGRATION
On Nov. 20, SDA took part in a seminar organised by the Foundation Access to Rights in Sofia for representatives of state and non-governmental organizations on new changes in the legal and administrative procedures regarding stateless persons. The event provided a forum for frontline practitioners, researchers and legal professionals to discuss various issues and obstacles to the successful integration of refugees in Bulgaria. S. Gabova from SDA attended the meeting and shared ideas and lessons learned from the INTEGRA project. For many of the participants, the project approach, namely, cooperating with city authorities to aid the implementation of policy and practical measures for migrant integration opens up new opportunities to tackle bottlenecks in critical areas such as access to information, public services, security and safety, institutional collaboration.
