Our second working paper on mapping and evaluating of migration and integration policies has been finalised and some of the summaries are already available on-line. We are also in the last phase of conducting the interviews with “third country nationals” and our samples point to the profile and distribution of migrants in each respective country. The total number of interviews is 16 per country. Each interview is carefully transcribed verbatim and then analysed according to the agreed methodology, drawing also on detailed field work diaries. The analyses will also be used for policy recommendations.

We are currently in preparations for conducting the second part of our field work; identifying and gathering the participant migrants and setting the field for successful focus groups based on a joint set methodology. The report structure for the third working paper that will focus on interviews and focus groups analysis has already been prepared.

The partner teams met at the second workshop that took place in Limassol, Cyprus, on 15-16 October 2009. For more, see the workshop 2 report.
