This workshop aims to enhance the knowledge level concerning integration of immigrants and mobile citizens within the European Union. Through this event we want to emphasize the need of a new, more in depth and efficient approach of the Romanian policy makers towards the integration of immigrants in terms of social services and anti-discrimination programs and also on the importance of informing people about their rights and responsibilities as mobile EU citizens.

In this way, the workshop will contribute in a practical manner to the current debates in this regard and will enhance the collaboration between academia, public institutions and civil society representatives, in order to develop a common view upon the real needs of immigrants and mobile citizens. As a result, we aim to develop a set of recommendations for all parties involved in the processes of elaboration and implementation of public policies for immigrants and mobile citizens, at national and European levels.

The papers that will to be presented are going to enter the peer review process and can be published in RoJIRES (Romanian Journal of International Relations and European Studies). See more about the publication at: http://www.rise.org.ro/revista-romana-de-relatii-internationale-si-studii-europene-rojires/.
