Summary report on value agents in public and civil society institutions
Economic, social, and cultural integration of refugees and immigrants settled in Europe is important to their well-being and sense of belonging as well as to the social cohesion of the wider society. Many EU member states have invested in programs aimed at teaching newcomers about ‘European values’ and the necessity to share these values to maintain social cohesion. In this report, we map central ‘value agents’ in public and civil society organizations that facilitate refugee and immigrant integration and examine the values that motivate and guide programs and staff assisting refugees in their integration processes. The report provides a set of recommendations and calls to action aimed at policy-makers, program managers, and community leaders.
