RACCOMBAT - Preventing and Combatting Racism and Xenophobia through Social Orientation of Non-Nationals
In 2017, a team of researchers and practitioners from Bulgaria, Belgium, Greece, Latvia, Austria and Romania has gathered under an effort funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020) to see whether and how their countries, and other Member States, provide social orientation to third country and other non-nationals. The team's goal is to prove that social orientation is, can and should be turned into a common tool to give knowledge about law and fundamental rights and empower both migrants and host societies against racism and xenophobia.
