REGIN Indicators Comparative Report 2022
REGIN arises from the recognition of the need for an evaluation framework in the field of migrant and refugee integration that is applicable to the regional level and that is based on empirical evidence. To this end, the Barcelona Centre for International affairs (CIDOB) and the Migration Policy Group (MPG) have developed the first set of indicators in Europe that analyses integration governance and outcomes at a regional level.
REGIN indicators are made of two distinct parts: 61 regional governance-indicators (MIPEX-R) and 55 regional outcome-indicators. REGIN indicators draw on existing knowledge (i.e., MIPEX, NIEM; ICC, Zaragoza indicators), but follow a different analytical approach: adjusted to the regional level, focused on the capacity of regions to respond specifically to the challenges of integration (targeted focus), and extended to the governance model (beyond policy). More precisely, MIPEX-R measures and evaluates the regional governance of integration focusing on i) the elements of the governance system (i.e. actions, actors and relations, and resources); ii) the phases of the governance process (formulation, policy-output, implementation, evaluation); iii) the main-areas of integration (i.e. culture and religion, education, health, housing, language, labour market, and social security); and iv) two target-populations (i.e., TCNs and BIPs1). The analysis covers 25 European regions of seven EU Member states: Azores (POR), Bavaria (GER), Berlin (GER), Campania (ITA), Catalonia (SPA), Emilia-Romagna (ITA), Flanders (BEL), Friuli-Venezia Giulia (ITA), Lisbon (POR), Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (GER), Melilla (SPA), Murcia (SPA), Navarre (SPA), Basque Country (SPA), Apulia (ITA), Skäne (SWE), South Tyrol (ITA), Tyrol (AUS), Trento (ITA), Valencia (SPA), Västra Götaland (SWE), Veneto (ITA), Vienna (AUS), Vorarlberg (AUS), Wallonia (BEL).
