EURITAWorking collaboratively with practitioners in European States on refugee integration
The European Resettlement and Integration Technical Assistance (EURITA) Project engages practitioners in European States on issues of inclusion and integration. Funded by the U.S. Department of State, the goal of EURITA is to work collaboratively with countries to identify and learn from strategies that have been successful in U.S. communities and could be applicable in the European and Eurasian context.
In 2017, EURITA facilitated workshops in Portugal, Greece, Serbia, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Italy, bringing together representatives of municipalities, national governments, civil society, refugee advocacy groups, international organizations and faith-based entities to explore promising practices in areas of common interest.
Ongoing EURITA activities include in-country workshops and training throughout Europe, the development and sharing of resource materials tailored to the European and Eurasian context, and collaboration on promising practices through web-based sharing and learning.
