The EU is experiencing an unprecedented influx of migrants and refugees and data shows that global human mobility – whether it is spurred by economic, social, environmental or political reasons – will increase in the following decades. European societies will become more diverse, plural, and multi-ethnic. Thus, integration policies applied from the European to the local level need to be improved in order to be able to respond to changing needs and guarantee social cohesion while respecting the rule of law and promoting a human rights-based approach.

The FEPS and SOLIDAR publication ‘From Europe to Local: Migrating Solidarity’ is a collection of contributions by academics, high level experts and policymakers presenting progressive policy solutions to turn the challenges linked to migration and integration into social and economic opportunities for the European Union and its member states. The analyses touch upon the institutional frameworks in which integration policies are developed from the European to the local level as well as the existing cooperation models between local authorities and civil society organisations to provide services to migrants and refugees.
