Four national reports for the AMiD (Access to services for Migrants with Disabilities) project have been published in the last few weeks. The aim of the reports is to provide an overview of the situation of migrants with disabilities in four countries: Austria, Finland, Greece and Italy. These national reports may help in developing more concrete actions to support an efficient management of the reception and integration of asylum seekers and migrants with disabilities in the EU.
Next Tuesday 18 December in Barcelona, on International Migrants Day and as part of the AMiD project, the Assembly of European Regions and the Region of Catalonia are organising the conference “International Migrants Day: Promoting Diversity in Regions” on promoting the diversity and integration of migrants at a regional level. The Conference will bring together representatives of regional authorities, high-level institutional officials and other stakeholders from across Europe. Invited speakers and participants will share their experiences and good practices in diversity management at regional level, including examples of policies, programmes and projects promoting inclusion, participation in civic, economic and political life, positive intercultural interaction and the sense of belonging.

The AMiD project aims to support an efficient management of the reception and integration of asylum seekers and migrants with disabilities in the EU. The AMiD project is a consortium of 12 partners, and EASPD is the project coordinator for the 24 months of duration of the project. The project is funded by the European programme AMIF. SOLIDAR’s main task in the project is to disseminate the outcomes of the project and communicate its key results.
