The Law on integration regulates the tasks of the municipalities, one of which is to compile an integration programme. Municipal integration programmes aim to promote the integration of immigrants and strengthen cross-sectoral cooperation.
In the autumn, MDI will support the preparatory work for Helsinki’s integration programme (2021-2025). The preparatory work will assess the ongoing programme and provide guidelines for the new programme which will be compiled in cooperation with various sectors and stakeholders.
Preparatory work for the programme will be carried out via the analysis of documented material, individual interviews, surveys, hearings and network meetings.
