The European Web Site on Integration (EWSI) is an initiative of the Directorate General for Justice, Liberty and Security of the European Commission.

It aims to provide policy makers and practitioners working on integration in Europe with a tool for the exchange of information and good practice on integration across Europe. Currently it is maintained for the European Commission by a consortium of three partners: Migration Policy Group (lead partner), UNISYS and the European Service Network.

Accessible at www.integration.eu and available in English, French and German, the EWSI acts as a one-stop resource for people working on integration issues, both in non-governmental and governmental organisations. More specifically, the Web Site offers:

· An online library for documents, funding information, news and events on migrant integration,

· A repository of case studies of integration practices, presented in a clear and comparable way for easy extraction and import,

· Exchange of information and networking between stakeholders through the contacts directory.

PROVIDUS researcher is the country coordinator for Latvia, with the general responsibility for ensuring a balance of contributions to the EWSI from Latvia, locating and posting the following information:

· Documents and good practices on immigrant integration,

· Relevant news items and events,

· National funding schemes (for grants),

· Information about national stakeholders – institutions and organizations working in the field.
