Application process opened for ground breaking migrant political integration scheme
The successful Opening Power to Diversity (OPD) scheme matches volunteer migrants and new Irish citizens with TDs and Senators. The OPD scheme which was launched last year, and is now in its fourth term, has been endorsed by the Taoiseach as 'an innovative way to involve immigrants to our country in its political life'. Over a six month period beginning in January 2014 participants will get a unique and valuable experience and insight into how politics works in Ireland by observing and assisting the TD or Senator in his/her daily work. Follow this link for further information on how to apply for the OPD scheme.
This project is co-financed by the European Commission under the European Integration Fund
and is supported by the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration in the Dept of Justice & Equality & Pobal.
