The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is implementing the project " Enhancing social inclusion opportunities for displaced people fleeing Ukraine to Hungary" (MMIA-2.2.15/17-2023-00003) from 1 September to 31 December 2023.

The project aims to contribute to the successful social, cultural and economic inclusion of third-country nationals from outside the European Union in a sustainable way, paying attention to their specific needs and requirements. The main target groups of the project are mainly persons from Ukraine who have Ukrainian citizenship or persons without Ukrainian citizenship who have resided legally on the territory of Ukraine. In view of the specificities of the target group, there is a need to move from an initial emergency humanitarian assistance to a more long-term and comprehensive approach. This will shift the focus to their socio-economic inclusion. 

The project also aims to promote the building of links between people from Ukraine and to reduce the stress arising from the migration process, as well as challenges related to discrimination, language skills and employment challenges. The project will also focus on improving the Hungarian language skills of people from Ukraine and encourage interaction with other social groups through socio-cultural and recreational activities that promote social interaction, cohesion and cultural dialogue. 

Overall, the project aims to adopt a comprehensive and holistic approach that promotes the socio-economic inclusion of beneficiaries beyond the project timeframe, with the aim of enabling households to become self-sufficient in the long term without additional ongoing financial assistance, thus reducing the burden on local authorities and NGOs.
