The UPSTREAM project (funded by EIF) on the mainstreaming of integration governance will hold its final event on June 18th in Brussels. This invent involves a public discussion on how a coordinated approach to integration may be more effective in creating more effective and inclusive approaches to diversity across the policy making spectrum, and at all levels of governance.
In particular, it will address the following questions:
1) How can national governments and the European Union better support local authorities dealing with high population turnover —from pupils arriving and needing extra language support throughout the school year, to pressures on private and social housing?
2) How can greater awareness of diversity be embedded in the DNA of all public services, to help address emerging challenges earlier in the pipeline and help overcome discrimination in public services and the labour market?
3) How can the European Union incorporate the lessons learned at local, regional, and national level to make its major financial instruments work better in tandem with each other?
