The cities of Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Hamburg, Copenhagen and Goteborg collaborate within the project “Local Welcoming Policies EU migrants”. The aim is to adapt and improve their current Welcome Policies by creating an ‘ideal’ Welcome Policy which will be implemented in the six participating cities.
This report is the result of the local research in the city of Amsterdam. We conducted ten interviews with representatives from different departments of the local authorities and civil society. We organized two focus groups in which we spoke with 28 EU migrants. Furthermore, we gathered data regarding EU migrants in Amsterdam and wrote a paper regarding migration policies in the past and lessons learned.
