What is it about?
Migration is a significant factor in shaping European societies and policies. As a collaborative fund, EPIM brings together the resources and expertise of foundations to strengthen the role of civil society in building inclusive communities and developing humane and sustainable responses to migration, based on Europe’s commitment to universal human rights and social justice.
EPIM empowers civil society to be recognised as a key actor in the design, implementation and evaluation of migration and integration policies and practices at local, national and European level.
Through grant-making, capacity and knowledge development, EPIM enables civil society organisations to be more sustainable and impactful. EPIM supports them in building effective pan-European coalitions and in shaping pan-European solutions by promoting constructive interplay between policies and practices at all levels.
EPIM initiates timely responses to opportunities and challenges in distinct, yet often interconnected areas of importance. This approach enables EPIM to provide targeted and outcome-driven support in fields such as working with children and young people on the move for their protection and empowerment, promoting alternatives to immigration detention, contributing to the development of humane and effective asylum systems, enhancing community cohesion, enabling mobile EU citizens to exercise their rights to free movement and contributing to a more balanced discourse on migration.
EPIM is a partnership under the aegis of the Network of European Foundations (NEF).
