We are delighted to announce the publication of the Evaluation of Policies on Social Inclusion, Migration, in particular interventions related to integration – PROFEEDbook2!

PROFEEDbooks support multidisciplinarity, the systematisation of different methodologies and the exact transfer of know-how for the policy evaluation community. These also serve the interests of European and national policy-makers in developing the frameworks of the next programming periods and of a common European evaluation culture. In addition, the PROFEEDbooks enrich the literature of public policy, aiming to develop theory, knowledge, method and tool base of European evaluation policy as well as a common understanding of the current problems and challenges. PROFEEDbooks will support the Action in reaching audience beyond the Action members.

The 2nd PROFEEDBACK Conference focused on Evaluation of Policies on Social Inclusion, Migration, in particular interventions related to integration. Social inclusion is a core policy area whose importance has been highlighted even further by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic recession. Any transition and recovery can only be carried out with keeping the inclusion and integration of the most vulnerable groups in mind, a notion which is reflected in various EU, national and regional policy documents. The aim of the conference is to discuss evaluation examples of integration and inclusion policies and transferable practices among evaluation professionals from COST member states. The conference took place in Maribor, Slovenia between 12-13 September 2022.The event was organised by OPHIZ in cooperation with the University of Maribor, Faculty of Economics and Business and the Economic Society Maribor.
