Integrating Immigrants as a Tool for Broad Development

Immigration can contribute importantly to the sustainable economic growth of aging host countries like Portugal. The challenge for this policy to succeed is the integration of immigrants. This project experimentally evaluates an active immigrant integration program's impact using a randomized controlled trial implemented among immigrants residing in the Greater Lisbon area and their relatives in Cape Verde. The integration program is multi-dimensional and aims to promote better quality employment of migrants, better access and usage of health and education services, and improve other integration indicators.
