MA 17 is actively involved in the EUROCITIES network as part of the working group "Migration and Integration" of the Social Affair Forum. The working group developed the peer review project 'Diversity and Equality in European Cities' (DIVE) that is co-financed by the EU. The project emerged from the "Integrating Cities" policy dialogue that is based on an annual conference series and was established in 2006 to promote the integration of migrants at local level.
