Description of the problem
In the last year, migrant issues in the EU become global issue that requires a proactive response on national and transnational levels of various European and Slovenian institutions. In the next few months, individual countries, in accordance with the decision of the EU, will have to integrate a certain number of migrants (SI will have to integrate 576 migrants, DE 50 times, and HR 1.7 times the odds of SI). Successful integration of migrants should be based on a holistic approach, supported by a high level of professional competence of experts in the field of working with and for migrants. The project "Integrated approach for successful integration of migrants" will be created and established by optimal model of an integrated approach for successful integration of migrants into the Slovenian environment in the field of education, social security, healthcare, public administration, work-employment sector and other relevant areas. Partner institutions from DE, HR and MK have extensive experience in working with migrants, because for the long time, the main immigration flows are directed to the so-called Balkan migration route. These are reputable institutions, which are also confronted with the specific needs and expectations of the "new" profile of the migrant. We can confirm that a unified, comparable and professionally supported comprehensive approach, which would generate successful integration approaches, has not yet been established in the partner countries. This is the aim of our project.
