Panel 2: Scaling up and institutionalizing novel migrant integration practices

A panel discussion about the challenges and opportunities for the institutionalization and scaling up of migrant integration practices driven by public, private and civil society organizations.

Friday November 8, 14:15 - 15:45

Local actors - politicians, municipal officers, companies, civil society organizations – in many parts of the world have over the past years developed novel bottom-up initiatives for the social and economic inclusion of immigrants in the host communities.

Despite their novelty, and often proven success, many of these initiatives face challenges when it comes to their growth, dissemination and scaling-up.

How do some initiatives succeed in making new practices more permanent, visible when they are integrated into the formal structures of mainstream organizations and replicated in other places. In other words, how are they institutionalized?


  • Ann-Louise Hohlfält, Innovation and Business Centre, SDF Västra Hisingen, City of Gothenburg: From project to permanent local government structure.
  • Blanca Callén Moreu, Grigri Cultural Projects, Barcelona-Madrid, Spain: Social inclusion through community participatory design, networks and alliances.
  • Urban Björn, Leadership & Talent Management, responsible for Äntligen jobb (Job at last), Swedbank: A collaborative initiative between a company and the national employment agency that stabilises over time and is replicated.
  • Maja Ohlsson, Procurement Department, City of Gothenburg: Social procurement in public organizations. From local to national.
  • Dutch Council for Refugees (to be confirmed)


If you would like to participate, registration is neccessary due to a limited number of seats for non-conference participants.

Please register here by November 4(you will be directed away from the OMICS 2019 website).
