Call for experts – Research on funding dedicated to migrant inclusion under the European Social Fund (ESF)

The European Programme for Integration and Migration (EPIM) is looking for (an) expert(s) to conduct a piece of research on funding dedicated to migrant inclusion and social cohesion under the European Social Fund (ESF).

This research will be conducted in the context of EPIM’s Thematic Fund on “Building inclusive European societies”. With this Fund, EPIM supports civil society organisations in promoting whole-of-society approaches to migrant inclusion in policies, funding and practices to enhance social cohesion among migrants and other members of the societies they are part of.

The research will provide an overview and analysis of funding dedicated to migrant inclusion disbursed under the European Social Fund. Findings should offer support to civil society organisations active in advising EU funding for migrant inclusion in the context of the post-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework negotiations and its follow-up.
