PITCH

Description

PITCH is a three-year project, launched on January 1, 2022. PITCH aims to establish a common European ground to support the design and implementation of local integration strategies addressed to migrant women, based on a personalised, participatory, and multi-stakeholder approach. The project will do so by co-designing a model, that will be adjusted into 7 local strategies, and implemented with migrant women in Italy, Greece, Slovenia, Spain, Cyprus, Lithuania and Sweden. This will lead to:

  • Enhanced socio-economic integration of migrant women and increased interaction between them and the host society
  • A newly developed model for integration strategies adaptable to the specificities of different local contexts
  • Sustainable collaborations and increased readiness of organisations, institutions and relevant stakeholders to tackle integration issues in the future.

Objectives

In the long term, the adoption of the PITCH model is expected to contribute to the improvement of the socio-economic integration of migrant women in the involved countries. This will be achieved:

  • By offering personalised roadmaps to integration combining upskilling, awareness-raising and social activities tailored to each woman’s specific needs, and addressing different aspects of the integration process, women’s autonomy, awareness of existing services, and access to the labour market will be facilitated.
  • Through social activities, where migrant women will be offered a safe space to interact with the local community, thus strengthening their sense of belonging to the host society, and bringing a cascade effect on other migrant women, who are not directly involved in the project.
  • Through the multi-stakeholder project’s partnership that includes civil/research organisations and municipalities, through which PITCH will ease the sustainability of the local strategies and the mainstreaming of the model among relevant policy makers, and local stakeholders involved in integration processes.
  • Through the transnational peer-learning and exchange of practices between organisations and municipalities that will allow the exchange of new ideas on how to tackle integration issues, inspiring future strategies in the involved countries and beyond.
