Municipalities hosting refugees create network to exchange best practices
1 October 2016
The Center for Mediterranean Integration (CMI) just launched a private Facebook group to offer a space for municipalities hosting refugees to exchange and learn from each other’s experiences, challenges and best practices in order to ensure the common welfare of refugees and host communities.
The “Host Municipalities Network” Facebook group is open to municipalities hosting refugees from the Middle East, Turkey, North Africa and Europe.
Representatives of development institutions and interested CMI partners are also welcomed to take part. As the Facebook group is private, members can join only by invitation and all discussions are private. Discussions can be conducted in either Arabic or English.
This Facebook group is managed by the Center for Mediterranean Integration, as part of the Mediterranean refugees and host communities program.
Instructions for joining the group:
- Please send CMI the email address you use on Facebook or your exact name as it appears on your Facebook account so that CMI can add you to the group.
- Once added, you will receive an invitation either by email (which might end up in your spam folder) or a notification on Facebook.
- In both cases, don’t forget to click on “accept the invitation” to become a member of the group.
