Integration Strategy (Integrating=Belonging)

Integration=Belonging was the first migrant integration strategy ever adopted in Malta. The document is divided into 2 main parts: the strategy itself and the accompanying action plan to be implemented during the following 3 years. One of the key actions of this strategy was the I Belong Programme.

This strategy created a framework for understanding successful integration through the level of the migrants’ own sense of belonging to Maltese society and the space Maltese society allows for such integration in its different sectors and strata. The Migrant Integration Action Plan set out a series of measures and identify institutions responsible for each action, as well as a timeline for their implementation.

The publication of the strategy and action plan was welcomed by civil society and international organisations, some of which were consulted during the process of drafting it.

The 2019 Integration Annual Conference showed the updates seen till that time.
