In the first half of 2020, the EU is planning to launch consultations for a renewed Integration Strategy. In response to the 2015/6 arrivals, the Commission launched the 2016-2017 Integration Plan, its first cross-cutting strategy with specific mainstreaming commitments from various relevant Directorate Generals. Which of these commitments are most effective and most relevant for the current situation and long-term needs of the over one million people who received international protection in the EU since 2015 as well as all of Europe's other immigrants groups, their descendants and their local communities? How can the EU's future work on integration better fit into its long-term funding priorities for social inclusion as well as for its new plans for a cross-cutting strategy on equality?
