The high migratory pressure and the rise of identity politics that the European Union has had to face in recent times, have made the inclusion of newly arrived migrants in their host societies more and more challenging. The two dominant models of integration in Europe, multiculturalism and assimilationism, have partially failed the objective of achieving a real integration of third country nationals.
On the one hand, multiculturalism has contributed to creating ghettos, while on the other hand, the assimilation model has forced the migrants to abandon their previous identity.
In this regard, host communities should better meet and understand new migrants and their needs. Α real and successful integration of migrants in the host societies requires direct interaction between people of different communities, as well as intercultural and interreligious dialogue. Also, this interaction can eradicate issues such as xenophobia, radicalization and racism and improve the socio-economic condition of migrants
By strengthening the social interaction between local people and young migrants through 4 campaigns, Inclusive Europe aims at facilitating the inclusion process of newly arrived migrants into host society and improving their socio-economic conditions.
