PITCH

A model for gender-sensitive integration strategies based on Personalised, partIcipaTory, loCal, and multistakeHolder approaches

PITCH is an innovative project that aims at establishing a common European ground to support the design and implementation of local integration strategies addressed to migrant women, based on a personalized, participatory, and multi-stakeholder approach. The project will do so by co-designing a model, translating it into 7 local strategies, and pilot-testing it with migrant women in Italy, Greece, Slovenia, Spain, Cyprus, Lithuania and Sweden.

This will lead to:

  • Enhanced socio-economic integration of migrant women and increased interaction between them and the host society
  • A newly developed model for integration strategies adaptable to the specificities of different local contexts
  • Sustainable collaborations and increased readiness of organizations, institutions and relevant stakeholders to tackle integration issues in the future.

During its 36-month lifetime, PITCH will directly and indirectly positively impact:
