Currently, our second working paper on mapping and evaluating of migration and integration policies is being finalized. Soon the summaries will be available on-line. At the same time, we are in the second phase of conducting the interviews with “third country nationals”.

We are following our samples, which point to the profile and distribution of migrants in each respective country. The total number of interviews we will make at the end is 16 per country. Each interview is being analysed according to the agreed methodology, and the analyses will later be used also for policy recommendations.

The partners are meeting at the second workshop that will take place in Limassol, Cyprus, on October 15-16. Findings of the second working paper and the field part of the research will be discussed. We will update each other on the progress of our interview process and we are going to discuss the next stage of the field work, which is conducting focus groups with migrants. Methodology on focus groups will also be presented and discussed, so will other organizational and managerial details.
