"DARRA - Detection and response to radicalisation appearances"

The aim is to create an instrument / tool to help identify people / cases that are affected by radicalization and in which cases extreme acts of violence may be involved. The evaluation tool is selected by people who need more and more attention. The tool is primarily aimed at constables and youth police officers, since they are in a position to detect such cases at an early stage.

„Promoting refugee Integration Support through youth Engagement: 1951 Convention and nowadays refugees“ (Project PROMISE)

„Promoting refugee Integration Support through youth Engagement: 1951 Convention and nowadays refugees“ (Project PROMISE)

Promote better acceptance of European decisions for refugees in host communities through: a) creation of discussion forums around key concerns in Europe due to refugee emergency in the context of the 1951 Refugee Convention, and b) development of tools for youth engagement in refugee integration at (trans) national level. The aims of the project will be achieved by creation of (trans)national network of youth motivated to support refugees. Wxpected impact is the engagement of youth motivated to speak for and support refugees through networking created by the project will contribute to more welcoming environment for relocated/resettled refugees in the mid-term and improved conditions for refugee acceptance and integration in participating countries in a long run, including those opposing recent European decisions on refugees. Linking these youth networks to existing youth organizations and NGOs working with refugees who are project partners will ensure the sustainability of their operation in a medium term, as NGOs frequently need motivated young people in their work.

„Integration of refugees in Lithuania Participation and Empowerment Understanding Integration in Lithuania through an age, gender and diversity based participatory approach“

„Integration of refugees in Lithuania Participation and Empowerment Understanding Integration in Lithuania through an age, gender and diversity based participatory approach“

To understand the reasons why many refugees recognized in Lithuania move onwards, and inform the content of UNHCR’s engagement, the first step has been to conduct a Participatory Assessment of refugees’ integration opportunities and challenges in Lithuania, from the perspective of the refugees themselves. For UNHCR, it is crucial to start the formation of an assessment and analysis of the effectiveness of the current integration program, by listening to the voices of those the program is intended to benefit. In many respects, the refugees themselves are best placed to tell us if programs and activities being implemented by the Lithuanian authorities and NGO partners have the intended impact in practice, or if changes are needed in order to more effectively use the resources spent on facilitating integration. UNHCR, in close collaboration with the Lithuanian Ministry of Social Security and Labour and the NGO partners Lithuanian Red Cross Society and Caritas therefore formed a MultiFunctional Team, and conducted Participatory Assessments with almost 70 beneficiaries of international protection in Lithuania of different nationalities, ages, gender and personal and professional backgrounds, during October and November 2013.
