On April 13-14, a Dutch delegation of local and national policymakers will visit Polish counterparts on the topics of diversity mainstreaming and intra-EU mobility, part of a broader series of work visits organized in the context of the UPSTREAM project on mainstreaming integration governance.
The Dutch delegation includes representatives from the Department of Social Affairs, the Department of Security and Justice and the City of Rotterdam. They will be accompanied by several scholars from the UPSTREAM project, from Erasmus University Rotterdam, MPI-Europe and the Center for Migration Research of the University of Warsaw.
Besides roundtables on the central themes of the work visit (with representatives of Polish ministries, local authorities and NGO’s), the group will also visit the NGO Development Across Borders, the think tank Institute of Public Affairs and the Dutch Embassy in Poland.

Next week the Polish workvisit to Spain will take place.
The visit focuses on the sharing of Polish-Spanish experiences with integration and mainstreaming, as two relatively ‘new’ immigration countries. The Polish visitors will meet with several governmental- and non-governmental actors. See the full program below.
Next week the Dutch Upstream symposium on mainstreaming will take place.
Informed by the initial findings from the latest work package ‘Mainstreaming in Practice’ the state of mainstreaming in the fields of social cohesion and education will be discussed amongst the participating officials, political spokesmen and experts.
