  6. 6. KEY FINDINGS Legal integration makes a difference  Most are or want to be long-term residents or citizens  For few who don’t, they often do not want to settle in country or do not see difference with current status  Few potential family reunion sponsors. For some families, separation is choice. For others, it is due to policy obstaclesHIGHLIGHTS  Problems regularly reported with treatment by authorities (FR, IT, PT), documents (BE, DE), and dual nationality (DE)  Family reunion, long-term residence, and citizenship help people get more settled, better jobs and sometimes better involved and educated
  7. 7. KEY FINDINGS Societal integration involves broader interests, problems, and policies  High interest to participate. Many want more training, speak more than one language, and want to vote (as much as nationals do).  Personal challenges range from language skills to time to study and balancing work and family life  Problems with participation are often localHIGHLIGHTS  Immigrants regularly face structural problems in society ● Temporary or irregular work ● Mistrust of foreign qualifications, ● Discrimination ● or Limited public interest in diversity in politics  More potential for needs-based courses, political participation policies, and recognition of foreign qualifications
