About Integration - Building Inclusive Societies
Integration - Building Inclusive Societies, IBIS Integration - Building Inclusive Societies Online Community on Migration and Integration - Building Inclusive Societies (IBIS) Reinforcing efforts to harmonize the coexistence between newcomers and host communities is critical in improving social cohesion and intercultural relations, and in adding complexity to debates around migration. This is why the UN Alliance of Civilizations and the International Organization for Migration have jointly built this interactive community aimed at promoting good practices of integration. IBIS aims to: highlight successful models of integration of migrants to counter polarizing speech and stereotypes; encourage the replication of these models in other contexts, while promoting further involvement of a wide range of stakeholders, As a source of information and a virtual space for exchange and learning, IBIS supports coordination and cooperation between integration practitioners. This resource does not address policies and mechanisms for the regulation of migrant flows but advocates, rather, for active involvement of governments in implementing socio-economic, political-legal and cultural integration practices, and in protecting migrants human rights and the well being of all communities involved. Through proactive outreach to policy makers and opinion leaders within its network of partners, IBIS promotes a sense of ownership among users, become a hub for sharing replicable practices, and eventually trigger effective change. You are invited to contribute in building the content of IBIS by submitting your practice promoting integration practices across the world.
