Promoting Sustainable Policies for Integration (PROSINT)
The objective of PROSINT was precisely to understand the rationale for adopting specific integration measures that target newcomers from third countries. In particular, the study seeked to explore the expected impact of such measures or the lack thereof on migration patterns and integration trajectories of newcomers.
This study was carried out by a European research consortium, which, besides Germany includes countries as Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
The project was based on the empirical analysis of all participating countries in following issues:
- European and national policy frameworks in the selected countries
- Pre-arrival measures
- Post-arrival integration measures for newcomers
- Socioeconomic impact of immigration-related integration measures
- Integration processes for recent migrants not targeted by integration programmes
Whereas the efms explored the situation in Germany, the overall PROSINT project was coordinated by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) in Vienna.
