Migr'Action

Promoting the socio-professional integration of refugees through agriculture in French rural areas

For many years, France has been experiencing an increase in migration on its territory. Migrants are mainly concentrated around the country's major urban centres. Thus, many large cities are under pressure and are experiencing great difficulties in managing both the accommodation of migrants and their socio-professional integration. Especially since 2015, the desire to relieve congestion in cities has come into contact with another French priority, the revitalisation of rural areas. 

The influence of French rural areas has been in decline for many years. The structural problems of the agricultural sector are concomitant to this phenomenon. For example, although France is the leading agricultural power in the EU, the number of farms is declining due to a lack of qualified farmers and employees to take them over and competition from large farms.

 These two major challenges gave rise to the idea of the Migr'Action project. The objectives and expected effects of the project, which is gradually being built up, are numerous. Migr'Action aims to enable migrants to discover the rural world and the agricultural sector in a concrete way through introductory visits to farmers for a few days. Workshops are also held with migrants to deconstruct prejudices about rural areas and with farmers to train them in interculturality. In the long term, the project aims to build lasting professional relationships between migrants and farmers and to develop training courses for agricultural jobs adapted to refugees. In addition, it aims to enable the inhabitants of rural areas to have a positive vision of migration and to revitalise these areas.

Supporting differently vulnerable immigrants

Many Parisian organizations, in charge of supporting immigrants in vulnerable situations, agree on the same observations. Indeed, the majority of these people haven't resort to their rights, have difficulties in accessing health care and are absent from social and civic participation bodies.

In order to identify the levers for improving the social and civic integration of these people, we are working on the co-construction of a local dynamic between organizations. The objective of this group of actors is therefore to learn from the practices of one another, in order to strengthen their efforts to support vulnerable migrant populations.

To this end, we ensure the animation and structuring of the group through workshops for the exchange of practices, training, design of information/awareness tools on the intercultural approach... We also offer these different actors support in the experimentation of new accompaniement and/or partnership modalities. The purpose of these experiments is to be able to draw lessons from them and to formalize them so that they can be shared with other organizations.

Acting Collectively for Girls' Integration

The young people of the Mistral Lys Rouge Camine (a priority district of the city's policy in the Grenoble metropolitan area), and especially girls, face great difficulties in their socio-economic integration. With an activity rate of 27.7% compared to 44.3% for boys, girls are more excluded from the labour market, but also from the public sphere. This is due in particular to the weight of gender stereotypes that confine young girls to traditional reproductive roles (domestic and family care).

To promote the professional integration of these young girls, we work with local partners (Centre socio-sportif Le Plateau, Mission Locale, CODASE) to develop their power to act, so that they become actors in their lives and able to change their situation. It is notably through the practice of sport that they will (re)appropriate mixed public spaces and that they will be able to benefit from social support adapted to their needs.

Besides, professionals of integration and youth will be made aware and trained to take into account the specific obstacles linked to the integration of girls and to guide them in a gender-neutral way (training, occupation, leisure, etc.). Finally, spaces for dialogue will allow the families of these girls and, more broadly, the inhabitants of the district to discuss gender inequalities.

Dé-chiffrons les migrations

Having means to combat prejudices

Due to a global geopolitical context which constantly stigmatizes the most vulnerable populations, the immigrant people are particularly exposed to prejudices and they are still too often discriminated against because of common beliefs.

In order to fight the resistances and growth of these prejudices, acting alongside young generations allows building the foundations of a tolerant and inclusive society. Young people need to have information within a context and reference points on immigration issues. Their abilities to understand migration phenomenon and to act as enlightened citizens depend upon that.

Through ‘Dé-chiffrons les migrations’ project, we provide tools to volunteers and professional associative members so they can plan discussions and exchange sessions with young people and implement awareness actions on migration issues.

Working together to fight discrimination

Many activist organizations based in the Ile-de-France region and working for gender equality support the implementation of efficient actions to reduce inequalities. However, those organizations experience difficulties when it comes to promoting their actions because they don’t have the tools to assess their impact and the changes they generate.

For the past ten years, we have contributed to empower our Mediterranean partners in the field of women’s socio-economic integration and/or professional equality. Thanks to this experience and partnership, we have developed a ‘savoir-faire’ in terms of monitoring-evaluation. The aim of the E’Changeons project is to make the tools and methods of analysis we have developed available to the Ile-de-France organizations working on promoting equality.

Besides, E’Changeons project highlights the reciprocity between our Mediterranean and Ile-de-France partners. They indeed work together on an advocacy document, based on their respective field of experience, in order to deconstruct gender stereotypes.
