European Projects


Financed by: European Commission, Directorate-General “Migration and Home Affairs”, through the program Amif – Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund. 

1 February 2019 – 31 January 2021

Partners: Arci Solidarietà Onlus (leading partner), Università di Tor Vergata and Ares 2.0 from Italy; Südwind and Radio Afrika TV from Austria; Gender Project for Bulgaria Foundation and Council of Women Migrants from Bulgaria; Urban Prod from France; Foundation for Africa from Hungary;

In a context where third-country nationals are affected by the proliferation of misleading information and biased communication with discriminatory attitudes, young teenagers (11-14 y-old) must be prepared to enter the online world with proper tools. To do so, the project intends to analyze the main forms of stereotypes and discriminative behaviors that affected young people and their families, in order to create an innovative and highly communicative toolkit for schools. This tool will be developed through factual data, interviews, and images about migrants on the basis of the real discrimination patterns. The toolkit will be co-created through the engagement of the key agencies for the growth of the child and will involve both migrant and non-migrant stakeholders. Alongside this toolkit will be reinforced through an innovative large-scale communication campaign.
