Using indicators to monitor immigrant integration and evaluate policies in the EU – a new report

August 6, 2013

The report “Using EU Indicators of Immigrant Integration” was prepared at the request of the European Commission by the European Services Network (ESN) and the Migration Policy Group (MPG) as a tool to monitor the integration of immigrants and evaluate integration policies.

Factors such as the characteristics of the immigrant population, the general context in the country and national integration policies are considered in relation to societal integration outcomes in areas such as employment, education, social inclusion and active citizenship in order to build on the pilot ‘Zaragoza’ European integration indicators.

The report reflects on the different ways in which indicators could be used to understand national contexts, evaluate the outcomes of policies and create targets to improve integration.
