Volunteering: Perceptions, Experience and Barriers among Migrant Women, NGOs and Private Sector in Six European Countries
Volunteering as an integration method has been highly beneficial to any participant and the receiving society. However, there is a lack of knowledge and data about migrant volunteering in European countries.
As a multi-agency cooperation project, SMART Volunteering aims to fill this gap by exploring understanding of volunteering among migrant women and the crucial roles of civil society organizations and business actors in creating the conditions conducive to social integration.
The research works on broadening traditional concept of volunteering by highlighting its more strategic aspects .
This summary report, collated by the European Network of Migrant Women, is based on the national reports in Belgium, Cyprus, France, Italy, Spain and United Kingdom, written by SMART Volunteering partner organisations.
SMART Project is Co-funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund of the European Union
