The Migrant Integration Centre in Brașov was founded in 2011, as part of The Romanian Association for Promoting Quality and Successful Practices (ARPCPS).
The activity of the centre started with immigrant integration projects funded by The Ministry of Internal Affairs and the International Organisation for Migration, through its Office in Romania. These projects have been ongoing since 2011 and have in the meantime received additional funding from sources such as The Fund for Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (FAMI), EEA and Norway Grants, The Erasmus + Programme and funding from the local budget.
The Migrant Integration Centre in Brașov has as legal base the ORDINANCE no. 44 of January 29, 2004, regarding the social integration of foreigners who have acquired international protection or a right of residence in Romania, as well as of citizens of the Member States of the European Union, the European Economic Area and of citizens of the Swiss Confederation.
Services and Activities
Depending on the funding received, our Center can provide an annual financial help for refugees and other vulnerable migrants.
Our Center provides free information and counseling sessions for refugees and other migrants from NON-EU, EU and SEE countries.
Our center has been organizing Romanian language courses since 2011. Overtime, approximately 400 foreigners have participated in a Romanian language course organized by our Center.
All the activities within the Migrant Integration Center Brasov aim to familiarize the migrants with Romanian traditions and culture, but at the same time to familiarize the Romanian community with the cultural diversity of the city.
The integration program is dedicated mostly to refugees through a more complex set of integration measures, but also to other migrants from NON-EU countries.
The target group of our center is the group of NON-EU migrants, refugees, asylum seekers, citizens of EU and SEE countries and Switzerland. The countries where they come from are very diverse. The numbers below represent the number of their origin country.
