This handbook was developed in cooperation with the National Contact Points on Integration and is based on the outcomes of a series of technical seminars hosted by ministries responsible for integration in five different Member States, taking the handbook exercise from Tallinn (May 2005) to Rome (July 2005), Dublin (October 2005), Berlin (December 2005) and Madrid (April 2006). Seminar participants came from the 25 Member States, as well as Norway and Switzerland.
As in the first handbook, the second edition includes a mixture of 'methodological' and 'substantive' topics: chapters on mainstreaming and on integration infrastructure examine the structures and mechanisms used for implementing successful integration strategies across all policy fields, whereas chapters on housing and on economic integration present practices and lessons learned in these specific areas.
The handbooks are prepared by MPG as an independent consultant to the European Commission.
