About us

Platform Integration & Society offers research, consultation, practical advice and tools with regard to issues of integration, migration and diversity in the Netherlands.

The programme aims to contribute structurally to a diverse and well-balanced society. Platform Integration & Society selects topics based on its own knowledge and insight next to the need for knowledge expressed by the work field and society in general.  In addition to analysis and research, we position facts within their context and link them to successful practice examples: what works? These ‘best practices’ are presented on www.kis.nl in addition to publications, interventions, articles and blogs (in Dutch).

Platform Integration & Society is a three year programme hosted by Verwey-Jonker Institute and Movisie. It is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.

Target audience

Policy makers in municipalities and other government institutions, politicians, professionals in civil society organisations, migrants organisations and entrepreneurs.

Themes

Integration is a broad concept. That is why the programme has been divided into four main themes: new migration, social stability, inclusion & access, and participation. Around these themes we conduct research, we organise debates and we inform the media, professionals, authorities and organisations. The four themes are further divided into various projects. Each year, together with you, we decide what will be the emphasis in our work.

Needs oriented

The programme is guided primarily by questions arising in society. The portal offers access to our own knowledge, knowledge gathered elsewhere and knowledge from the professional field, and it allows for active exchange. If needed, the knowledge platform will highlight issues and discussions. The platform is open to relevant questions, signals and opinions, and formulates responses to capacity. All information will be shared without cost with people who are interested.
