Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund > Integration of third country nationals
The European Union’s objective to constitute an area of freedom, security and justice should be achieved, inter alia, through common measures framing a policy on asylum and immigration, based on solidarity between Member States, which is fair towards third countries and their nationals.
In order to contribute to the development of the common Union policy on asylum and immigration and to the strengthening of the area of freedom, security and justice in the light of the application of the principles of solidarity and responsibility-sharing between the Member States and cooperation with third countries, the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) was set up. It aims at supporting actions to contribute to the efficient management of migration flows and the implementation, strengthening and development of a common Union approach to asylum and immigration.
Five priorities have been included in this call for proposals, which relate to policy priorities identified in the Action Plan on integration of third-country nationals, in particular priority 1 and 2 of the call (corresponding to policy priority "social inclusion and active participation"), priority 3 of the call (corresponding to the policy of the Action Plan "pre-departure and post-arrival measures"), priority 4 of the call (corresponding to policy priority of the Action Plan "labour market integration and vocational training"). Priority 5 of the call relates to the EU legal and policy framework addressing trafficking in human beings.
