This September Crosscare Migrant Project (CMP) will launch a ground breaking migrant integration scheme aimed at increasing migrant participation and interest in politics in Ireland at the highest level. The Opening Power to Diversity (OPD) scheme will match volunteer migrants with a number of TDs and Senators. Over a six month period beginning in September migrants will get a unique and valuable experience and insight into how politics works in Ireland by shadowing the TD or Senator in his/her daily work. The application process for the migrant participants has now opened.
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.
