Building welcoming communities for migrants

01/06/2023 31/12/2025


In order to build more inclusive and resilient societies, local authorities need to ensure that migrant reception and support policies guarantee that migrants overcome obstacles in accessing their rights. The WELDI network empowers local authorities to put human rights at the heart of their efforts to develop dignified and innovative approaches to welcoming newcomers. In achieving this goal, cities of this network work hand in hand with migrants and other residents, as well as with local, national and international partners.
