Two special chapters are dedicated to specific groups.

Over the past few decades many countries in Europe and elsewhere in the world have encountered major challenges related to migration and integration of immigrants. The 2016 Ruppin International Conference will focus on the evolving impact of migration on sending and host societies. Economic migrants, asylum seekers and refugees are on the move and researchers from various disciplines try to assess current migration and integration processes in the macro and micro perspective. What does the future hold? What are the future challenges related to these massive migration trends? What lessons are offered by past experience that can assist us in identifying responses for the future? The conference we will address and discuss these questions with researchers, policy makers and field experts from around the globe, touching upon various relevant areas of interest and inquiry but not limited to policy-making, education, employment and economy, health, culture and identity.

The Institute for Immigration and Social Integration at the Ruppin Academic Center in cooperation with the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS) and the International Metropolis Project invites proposals for papers on a broad range of themes related to migration and integration- including an assessment for the future in the presented field:

The Grassroots Partnership Initiatives

Brief description of the initiative

Coptic Orphans is a Diaspora organization that seeks to unlock the God-given potential of vulnerable children in Egypt and equip them to break the cycle of poverty and become change-makers in their communities. The Grassroots Partnership Initiatives was launched in 2006 to promote linkages between migrants and Egypt. It is also a partnership?building and networking?expanding activity that succeeded in reaching out to over 4000 underserved children and 2000 households throughout Egypt. Funded projects varied widely, from health awareness for households to vocational training for youth with special needs and computer centers. Partners contributed money or labor to implement these activities. This in turn helped the majority of them maintain and sustain most of these activities even after the completion of the awarded grant.

Pilot programme to promote migrant organisations’ projects

Short title

Pilot programme to promote migrant organisations’ projects

Brief description of the initiative

Migrants who despite their »scattering« all over the world have never lost their ties to their country of origin can be interesting partners for development cooperation. The actors from the realms of development cooperation, politics and society are only very slowly becoming aware of this notion. The next logical step would now be to bring migrants (migrant organizations) and development agencies together. For this reason, in 2007 Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) established a pilot program on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to promote non-profit engagement. Prior to the program launch, too little was known about the structures and organizational forms of migrants in Germany, and even less was known about their engagement in their countries of origin. With over 20 supported projects from diaspora associations, several workshops and numerous studies on the diaspora in Germany, the knowledge to close this gap has been gathered in a successful way and should certainly be shared with other actors of the development cooperation.In coordination with other partner institutions Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) acquired a network of over 100 migrant organizations (MO) in Germany who actively engage in the development of their countries of origin.
