Immigration is a source of increasing polarisation in political debate and one of citizens’ main concerns. CIDOB addresses migration from a triple perspective: as a subject of politicisation in public debates, as an object of public policy and in relation to its forms of governance.

Increased asylum applications, the lack of a multilevel governance model and scarce resources are the main problems with Spain’s asylum system
Los países de la UE no consiguen establecer los mismos parámetros en sus políticas de integración de los refugiados, según el estudio NIEM dirigido por CIDOB en España
El estudio NIEM –National Integration Evaluation Mechanism– financiado por la UE muestra diferencias abismales en cuanto a la calidad de las políticas de integración de los refugiados en los países europeos, a pesar de los parámetros fijados por la normativa comunitaria e internacional.
“The European benchmark for refugee integration”, the new baseline report of the NIEM project, is a first comprehensive analysis of the framework in place in 14 EU countries.
The Spanish asylum system has been unable to respond quickly and effectively to the new migration reality, according to the National Report for Spain by the National Integration Evaluation Mechanism (NIEM) project, funded by the European Commission. Led in Spain by CIDOB, this project assesses integration policies for refugees and the beneficiaries of international protection at national level in 14 European countries.
The report highlights the inclusive nature of the asylum system in Spain, while showing the limits of an outdated and under-resourced system that lacks the tools with which to address today’s international protectionchallenges.
The NIEM project meets with the main stakeholders dealing with the reception of asylum seekers and refugees
The NIEM research project – dedicated to the analysis of asylum seeker and refugee integration policies in Europe – is launching its website “Forintegration.eu”
Spyros Galinos, Mayor of Greek island Lesbos, situated at 6 km from Turkey, is the person in charge of managing directly the critical situation in what is one of the main entry points to Europe.
Academics, experts, civil society representatives and policy makers came together on the 30th of June to discuss the “Integration Policies: Who Benefits?” (MIPEX2015) results and write together a set of recommendations for the European Institutions on how to continue improving integration policies for immigrants.
The research project “Differentiation in the naturalisation of Immigrants in Spain” (DNIs) analyses the effects of policies in the access to nationality in Spain.
CIDOB, jointly with the Migration Policy Group (MPG), leads the European project “Integration policies: Who benefits? The development and use of indicators in integration debates” (MIPEX 2015). The project aims to inform and engage key policy actors about how to use indicators to improve integration governance and policy effectiveness.
The European Web Site on Integration (EWSI) is a portal, which serves to share information and best practices of all member states of the European Union on the integration of immigrants.
The DNIs project analyzes the effects of the naturalization policies in Spain. It aims to understand the mechanisms by which the procedure creates a differentiating situation both among immigrant collectives as well as within the collectives themselves.
The project “ Integration policies: Who benefits? The development and use of indicators in integration debates ” (MIPEX 2015) is led by CIDOB, and the Migration Policy Group (MPG). The project aims to inform and engage key policy actors about how to use indicators to improve governance and policy effectiveness relating to the integration of immigrants.
The IMMIGRANT CITIZENS SURVEY is a comparative survey of 7 European countries, carried out among immigrant citizens. The survey gives a voice to those who ultimately are the recipients of integration policies adopted by the different administrations.
The National Integration Evaluation Mechanism (NIEM), Measuring and improving integration of beneficiaries of international protection is a six-years long transnational project which aims to prepare key actors in the integration field in 15 EU Member States to better face the current challenges and improve the integration outcomes of beneficiaries of international protection. Conflict situations tend to last longer and it takes currently on average 17 years, before refugees fleeing civil wars may eventually have a chance to return to their home country. Hence, the long-term integration of newly arrived beneficiaries of international protection is without alternative and presents an immediate challenge for European societies.
The project carries out a comprehensive evaluation of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) in terms of its framework and practice. It analyses the harmonisation which goes beyond the formal institutional setting and takes into account the complex relations among the actors engaged from the local and the national levels, to the European level, in order to explain the success and the failure of coordinated action between these varied actors.
El proyecto quiere crear un espacio de diálogo y reflexión entre les diferentes actores implicados en la gestión de la llamada "crisis de los refugiados" en la Unión Europea.
The project has a threefold objective: 1) to generate data on the housing conditions of asylum seekers and refugees in Catalonia; 2) to understand those factors that facilitate or hinder their access to housing; and 3) to provide guidelines for the formulation of specific policies and programs in this area.
This project studies the past, present and future of differentiated integration models in the European Union’s governance with the aim of facilitating policy-making, problem solving and policy implementation in the EU.
ADMIGOV aims to promote an alternative migration governance model studying the reality of existing polices and practices on the ground.
