European Web Site on Integration

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.

Project number: EIFX/PR/1001 Duration: 2011 (Open) Budget: 1.600.000 €



EWSI aims to promote integration policies and practices, to share successful strategies and to support cooperation among all stakeholders. It is open to everyone and allows visitors to share good practices, funding opportunities and find partners for new projects. It allows viewers to stay updated on the latest news, events and publications on integration issues at the European, national and local level.

More specifically, among the information it contains there are:

  • A collection of good practices , presented in a clear and comparable manner for easy viewing
  • An online library of key documents (legislation, policy papers, conference reports, etc.)
  • News and events updated daily
  • Information on European, national and private funding opportunities
  • Links to hundreds of integration actors
  • Information sheets for each country: summary of integration policies and governance arrangements of each Member State
  • Analysis documents
  • Information exchange and networking among stakeholders through directories and interaction tools

EWSI acts as a bridge between integration practitioners and policy makers by offering high quality content from across Europe and fostering the professional community. It is a comprehensive resource for those working on integration, both NGOs and governments.  

Since its creation five years ago, CIDOB has been the country coordinator of Spain. As such, its functions include: uploading up to date information on news, events, documents, funding, links and good practice; updating the information sheet of Spain; seeking information and writing the Spanish part of the analysis documents and integration dossiers.

It also manages the @EWSI_Spain twitter account.
