What’s IIRA about?

Immigrant Integration to Rural Areas: Identification and Exchange of Good Practices is a Transnational Co-operation project (under the LEADER Cooperation Measure of the respective National Rural Development Programmes) between 16 partners within the European Union to stimulate within their respective regions the exchange of good practices related with immigrant integration to rural areas.

This project aims to help newcomers with various backgrounds integrate and adapt to live in rural territories of the EU. A tangible outcome of the project is a joint publication of good “immigrant integration” practices from each of the partner regions.

The implementation period is 2017–2019
