Documents for Local Policies

The networking process of various stakeholders  participating  in the integration of foreigners  started at the beginning of 2018. During the spring and summer, ETP Slovakia organized two meetings of focus groups, the PhotoVoice activity, gathering  information from the questionnaires, its own research and individual consultations with the City representatives that resulted in the City Audit Integration Report for Košice City (Slovak version, English version) describing the current status.

The City Integration Lab (workshop with the experts) and the round table were held in autumn of 2019. Separate documents prepared by the experts were elaborated. The whole process of the preparation o thef Košice Integration Agenda (Slovak version, English version) was participative and included the  representatives of local government, public administration, non-government organizations, international organizations, schools and the foreigners living in Košice.

The documents may serve as a basis  for local policies and an input for areas touching the integration of foreigners.
