CESIE acts to promote intercultural dialogue among people from over the world and enhances capacities and values of each person building up a bridge of knowledge and sharing.
CESIE’S Migration Unit aims to centralise and connect all the activities carried out by CESIE, aimed at the target groups of asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants of all ages (children, youngsters, adults). The overall objective is to develop effective and inclusive approaches for the target groups. Therefore, the unit tries to increase the impact on the beneficiaries, to offer structured paths of integration and social inclusion among young people, foreigners, and local young people as well as to activate learning paths based on the training needs of migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers, no matter what age. Non-formal methodologies are used in the majority of activities, as these turn out to be the most appropriate to the needs of the target group.
