Preface In 2011 MPG successfully continued to implement its three programmes, finalising various projects and starting new ones. MPG’s Migration programme provides a reliable stream of information through monthly news and policy updates in the Migration News Sheet. It has delivered a new portal on behalf of the European Commission to facilitate migrants’ access to practical information on the migration processes in all 27 EU Member States and has gathered information on migration policies from expert sources as well as from migrants themselves in order to inform policy-making based on solid evidence and real experiences. MPG’s Integration and Diversity programme expanded the use of indicators and benchmarking methodology. The MIPEX exercise used 148 indicators encompassing a broad range of factors affecting the integration of migrants in society. The tools assessing diversity in the operations of political parties and the corporate sector utilise benchmarks and examples to provide users with a platform for self-assessment in diversity mainstreaming. Information is collected and published on portals and interactive websites that is comparable, and practical for immigrants and those working in the field of integration. This is then turned into reflection and analysis for policy actors, offering comparative data from seven to 33 countries. Surveying, involving migrants and consulting with immigrant associations ensures that the immigrant perspective provides a balance between the policy level and what is happening in practice.

››› MPG’s Anti-discrimination and Equality programme delivered a prolific output of capacity building materials and activities in 2011. A series of trainings offered a broad European-level overview as well as specific materials adapted to local realities in 32 countries. It continued with its long-running monitoring of the implementation of anti-discrimination law in 30 countries, as well as providing comparative analyses and examination of thematic areas. With this history of collecting information from across Europe, MPG is well-positioned to provide analysis on the mainstreaming of equality and non-discrimination in the EU’s Structural Funds and make recommendations for the programme.

1_ Migration & Mobility MPG’s Migration programme aims to inform the development of positive migration policies. It collects and disseminates high quality information, comparative analyses and policy recommendations, and brings together expert stakeholders to inform debates, raise standards and learn from each other.

EU Immigration Portal The European Commission Web Portal on Immigration developed and managed by the consortium of MPG, Unisys and BilbomĂĄtica, went live in November 2011. The Portal, available in both English and French, serves as a first point of entry to reliable, practical and up-to-date information on immigration issues. It helps prospective migrants to: >> Get direct and rapid access to practical information >> Find their way in the complex world of European admission rules and procedures

Portal to information on immigration >> Navigation through European migration rules and procedures >> Job and study opportunities

>> Identify job and study opportunities

>> Rights and risks for migrants

>> Find information on the rights of non-EU citizens who are in

>> ec.europa.eu/ immigration/

the EU >> Find out how the EU protects victims of trafficking >> Be informed on the risks of entering and staying in the EU without authorisation >> Be rapidly informed on specific immigration issues >> Benefit from a vast stakeholder directory.

MPG worked with the European Commission on the design and development of the Portal over a period of three years and was also responsible for updating the national content on the Portal up to the launch. MPG organised stakeholder consultations, designed the information format, gathered all information and presented national immigration law in a comparable way, working closely with MPG’s network of immigration law practitioners.

Network of Immigration Law Practitioners The network of independent legal practitioners in the field of immigration, MigNet, is comprised of 28 country experts from the European Union and Norway. Coordinated by MPG, the network aims to: >> Improve transparency in the field of migration law in Europe >> Monitor developments and exchange information on national and European laws and policies >> Promote the development of fair, just and quality immigration laws and policies.

Developing an Immigration Index Mobilising MPG’s network of immigration law experts (MigNet), the pilot Immigration Index will benchmark EU Member States’ immigration policies and law for the admission of economic migrants against the highest standards drawn from international and European legal instruments and pan-European recommendations. The Index will reveal migration opportunities to employers and migrant workers and allow for the exchange of information and best practices. The project will facilitate cooperation in developing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating immigration policies and law.

An expert questionnaire on migration indicators has been tested and refined. A qualitative study will be prepared to identify how each of the 27 Member States attract and retain specific categories of economic immigrants.

Value Migration The Value Migration project is conducted in partnership with the Expert Council of German Foundations on Integration and Migration (SVR) and sponsored by the Mercator Foundation. It seeks to answer the question: ‘What influences the transition from international student to highly skilled migrant?’ The study will analyse Europe’s competitiveness in the retention of international students and graduates against a backdrop of global competition for talent. During the second half of 2011, the team surveyed 7,000 international students in the final stages of their studies at 25 universities in France, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands and the UK. The results of the survey will be used to analyse: >> The propensity for graduates to stay in the country of graduation >> The reasons they intend to stay (or leave) >> The relevance, awareness and appreciation of EU Member State regulations to encourage retention. A final comparative report will be compiled to shed light on the popularity and appreciation of national rules to retain graduates and appraise the attractiveness and competitiveness of different countries for international graduates and academics.

2_ Diversity & Integration MPG takes a strategic approach to Integration and Diversity as the responsiveness of mainstream institutions and organisations to the challenges and advantages of Europe’s diverse populations is key. This means meeting the challenge of providing products and services that reflect the make-up of society, and harnessing the full potential that diversity offers. European Web Site on Integration

Focus on Family Reunion In November, MPG began a campaign to assist organisations in forming their responses to the European Commission’s consultation on the Family Reunion Directive with the publication of four policy briefings outlining and analysing the evidence available across the EU to inform policy change. The briefings, which also drew on the relevant MIPEX data on working on policy change, as well as policymakers themselves,

from across Europe.

Briefings:

The initial signs of positive use of the analysis have come from

organisations such as the European Network of Migrant Women, the European Network Against Racism (ENAR), Immigrant Council of Ireland, and the Migrants’ Rights Network as well as the Portuguese High Commission for Immigration and Intercultural Dialogue (ACIDI) and the Dutch Second Chamber, all using the information from the briefings.

2. Right to family reunion - the dynamics between EU law and national policy change 3. Impact of new family reunion tests and requirements on the integration process 4. Restrictions ‘in name of integration’ separate families in practice

Mainstreaming Diversity in Political Parties In 2011 MPG undertook a pilot project funded by the European Programme on Integration and Migration (EPIM) to assess the extent to which migrants’ voices are successfully heard at all levels of interaction with political parties (constituents, voters, activists, political candidates, employees, and suppliers). The project was informed by intensive consultations with political parties in France, Germany and the United Kingdom as well as the same political groupings working at the European level.

Becoming a Party of Choice

This led to the publication of a toolkit for political parties across

The toolkit, which was successfully launched at a round-table event hosted by the European Parliament’s anti-racism and diversity intergroup, includes an online assessment and benchmarking tool published in English, French and German, good practice examples to follow and a mapping of political party diversity initiatives in France, Germany and the UK. Taking the benchmark a step further MPG also developed a scorecard for political parties to score their own performance according to the detailed indicators and examples laid out in the benchmark. Pilots to use this tool are prepared in France, Germany, the UK, Flanders in Belgium, and Scotland.

Becoming a Buyer of Choice A similar exercise is being conducted to assess supplier diversity in the corporate sector using the same level of empirical evidence gathered in cooperation with companies over the past four years. The Supplier Diversity Europe programme is constructing a tool to mainstream supplier diversity for public and private procurers by laying out the indicators, steps and benchmarks to become a buyer of choice and better reflect the society in which they are operating. Companies who will use the tool in the pilot phase will be Johnson & Johnson, and Bristol Meyer-Squibb. Large Purchasing Organisations which have expressed a great interest in signing up include: G4S, IBM, CMS Cameron McKenna, Serco, Carillion, the Law Society, Clifford Chance and Eversheds.

How effective are integration policies in meeting migrants’ needs and aspirations? This pilot project began in 2011 and aims to make the voice of immigrants large and representative enough to affect the formulation of integration and immigration policies in Europe. The Immigrant Citizens Survey asked more than 7,000 immigrants in Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, and Spain to assess their aspirations and needs and to evaluate how effective integration policies are in meeting them. Immigrants as direct beneficiaries were asked questions on key integration areas: integration and language courses, employment, political participation, family reunification, long-term residence, and access to nationality. The results will be launched in 2012 in the seven countries, so that advocacy and policymaking organisations can better use the results of polling and consultation among immigrants. The timing of this project is strategic for the emerging EU agenda on capturing immigrant perceptions and designing common reference indicators to evaluate integration policy.

>> Rates of citizenship acquisition >> The impact of rates of citizenship acquisition on integration. The project will collect and compare national and international evidence on how acquiring citizenship enhances immigrants’ participation in society and the democratic process. It will analyse indicators to reveal the hidden links between citizenship and integration policies, including anti-discrimination, family reunion and long-term residence. ACIT will make an impact assessment of citizenship law in each country and across Europe. The findings will reveal the effects of recent reforms and compare the impact of legal rules with that of societal factors such as origin, residence duration, gender, age and social status. The research will cover all 27 EU Member States as well as the accession candidate and EEA countries. In-depth case studies will focus on ten EU Member States where national stakeholder dialogue events will be organised to engage local NGO and think-tank partners. The results will be disseminated in 10 national handbooks, four comparative reports based on the indicators and a final European-level report. The project is conducted in partnership with the European University Institute’s EU Democracy Observatory on Citizenship (EUDO) and is sponsored by the European Integration Fund.

Encouraging the migrant vote The Reception and Integration Agency of Luxembourg commissioned MPG to deliver training to civil society, political party and local council representatives in contact with migrants to inform and raise awareness of the political participation of third-country nationals in the municipal elections held in Luxembourg in October 2011. The training, organised together with the Centre d’Êtude et de formation interculturelles et sociales (CEFI), explained the legal and institutional framework relevant to the local elections (competences of local authorities; political and institutional structures; voting processes; etc). The material produced included tools for migrant associations to elaborate communications strategies and an awareness-raising campaign to reach migrants and encourage them to vote in the Luxembourg municipal elections.

The Network produced a Handbook outlining how to present a discrimination claim, and a thematic report on ‘Age and Employment’ examining some of the practical aspects of the implementation of the prohibition of age discrimination. The 2010 country reports, describing the measures to combat discrimination in each country, were put together, updating the 2009 editions to represent the state of affairs up to 1st January 2011. The reports, written by independent national experts, cover national law, the establishment of enforcement mechanisms and the adoption of other measures. The 2009 country reports were compiled into the 2010 Comparative Analysis report to draw conclusions from across the 27 EU Member States, as well as Croatia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey. In addition, the European Anti-discrimination Law Reviews 11, 12 and 13 were published providing updated news, analysis and information on the implementation of anti-discrimination law, as well as articles analysing specific legal issues written by experts in the field.

Awareness-raising and training MPG, in partnership with HEC, is rolling out awareness raising seminars in the areas of non-discrimination and equality targeted particularly at civil society organisations in 32 countries across Europe. Building on MPG’s extensive capacity building experience, the project is producing training modules and implementing training and dissemination activities to strengthen the capacity of NGOs to deal with non-discrimination and equality. The overall goal of the project is to take a next step in the improvement of the impact and effectiveness of civil society organisations with regard to the implementation of equality and non-discrimination legislation and policy. The needs of civil society organisations at the national level were identified during the first phase of the project. On the basis of this needs assessment, relevant training modules were designed by the team of international coordinators before being delivered to a core group of national trainers during a three day seminar built on the ‘train the trainers’ methodology. A training manual, consisting of a general part including the institutional and legal framework, role of NGOs and training modules (collecting information and planning action, monitoring, advocacy, partnerships, media, situation testing, codes of conduct), and a national section translated into the national languages, has been developed. Between November 2011 and March 2012, national seminars to train civil society organisations took place in all the target countries. During the first round of seminars, more than 500 people were trained at the national level. The closing seminar will be held in April 2012.

Promoting EU non-discrimination and equality standards The main objective of the project Promoting EU Non-discrimination and Equality standards in the programming and implementation of Structural Funds is to make proposals to the EU institutions for amendment of the regulatory framework of the Structural Funds with a view to reinforcing the implementation of the principle of non-discrimination and equality. The analysis will focus on non-discrimination based on racial or ethnic origin and will explore in particular the implementation of this principle with respect to Roma. MPG will prepare a report with an analysis of how equality and non-discrimination is mainstreamed in the programming, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of Structural Funds in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Slovenia. This analysis and resulting recommendations will be used to facilitate discussion with key stakeholders within the EU institutions and Member States and will be used to assess the need for building the capacity of public officials working on the design and implementation of the structural funds in the five countries. This project is part of the ‘Making the Most of EU funding for Roma (MtM) initiative of the Open Society Foundations’, conducted by the Open Society Institute Europe Foundation.

MPG’s information collection on all developments related to migration, diversity and equality spans the European Union and neighbouring or comparable countries. This data is not only published to further transparency and facilitate analysis by others, but it is used by MPG to put forward recommendations and tools for change. In order to bridge the gap between knowledge and real change, MPG develops tools which allow actors to use good practices, compare situations, assess others, and also to assess themselves. Increasingly, tools make use of online technologies to store, navigate through and use information, and they also continue to come in the form of how-to handbooks and trainings. Regular monitoring shows a steady increase in MPG’s online reach through MPG’s website and satellite sites as well as through sites MPG is involved in. In total in 2011 these sites received over 237,000 visits from 154,000 visitors. MPG keeps in touch with its core followers via newsletters to 5,500 subscribers and through social media.
