The members of the Nordic Migrant Expert Forum have spent the last year pondering the question: What should good integration consist of?
Their work resulted in 13 recommendations designed to inspire the integration ministers, which they have just presented at a meeting in Reykjavík.
A measurable Nordic approach to integration
The chair of the committee, Takura Matswetu, attended the meeting and had this message:
“Measurable integration is a roadmap to success!”
Matswetu elaborates by recommending that the ministers should come together to formulate a definition of a Nordic approach to integration. The definition should be broad and cover multiple policy areas, including education, the labour market and language acquisition. The ultimate aim is to build cohesive and equitable societies based on justice.
