Partner: Center for the Research of Ethnicity and Culture (CVEK)

Supported by: European Union through the European Fund for Integration of the Third-Countries Nationals

Project span: April 2013 – March 2014

Objectives: The main goal of the project is to analyze social and cultural integration of foreigners from the third-countries on local level through case- studies-approach in three chosen localities. This goal should be reached by application of anthropological research. The research project is set up in a way for not only precise mapping of social and cultural integration of the third-countries nationals but also for emphasizing the simple and evident possibility to apply research results in practice on the level of the surveyed localities. Afterwards, based on research results, the project will draw in clear and understandable manner the situation with social and cultural inclusion of the third-countries nationals in inquired localities. It should also propose some straightforward possibilities how to improve and optimize the social integration of foreigners in these three localities. This should assist to better integration of third-countries citizens into Slovak society. Project also supposes to increase conviction and to strengthen professionalism of local actors elaborating their own effective specific strategies to support and assist the integration of foreigners in local societies.
