Migration and Development

An improved linking-up of actors of the development sphere and migrant organisations in the municipality: this was the aim of a project that was implemented by InWEnt in Bonn, the District of Düren, Kiel, Leipzig and Munich. The project was funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

By order of InWEnt, finep facilitated the networking process in Leipzig and Munich. Within the framework of four workshops in each city which finep planned and facilitated, migrant organisation, one-world actor and representatives of the municipalities elaborated aims, and identified spheres of activity and ways for an improved cooperation.

The results were published as a practical manual. The Servicestelle Kommunen in der Einen Welt published the brochure (in German) within the framework of their series Global Dialogue. The print version is available there. The electronic version is available as pdf (4 MB) here. 

In January 2010, the journal SüdZeit published an article on the project (in German) which can also be downloaded here (pdf; 1 MB).
