WHY NATIONAL COALITIONS IN GERMANY, FRANCE, ITALY AND SPAIN?
The national coalitions connect the wide range of initiatives already in place in Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Their objective is to promote exchange of experience, knowledge and practice. These platforms also provide opportunities to network, join forces and initiate advocacy actions towards national and sub-national institutions and stakeholders. Through stock-taking at key events and an assessment of policy needs, the coalitions identify opportunities and obstacles at national and sub-national level and address them in terms of policies, specific measures and funding programmes.
WHO SHOULD JOIN THE NATIONAL COALITIONS?
The coalitions include municipalities leading in the field such as Munich, Milan, Tolosa, Bilbao, Getxo and are open to all relevant local, regional and national stakeholders, including migrant entrepreneurs and their platforms themselves, interested in joining the initiative. Public administrations, chambers of commerce and business support organisations, migrant-support NGOs, migrant-run NGOs, training institutions, research centres, universities and all other stakeholders committed to improve policies for migrant entrepreneurs in their country are invited to join the coalitions.
