THE NETHERLANDS

REFUGEES TAKE THEIR INTEGRATION IN THEIR OWN HANDS

The Dutch Refugee council in the Netherlands is using the Constellations SALT approach to accompany strength based integration of refugees. As a result, in some places groups of refugees have taken ownership of their own integration. Some have become active neighbors in a new neighborhood in Amsterdam, others have organised a fashion show with their own talents and means. In the South former refugees now accompany newcomers through youth and women groups. In all cases the refugees have re-considered their strengths and their capacity to dream. 

A group of Eritreans even influenced policies when they put their individual stories of problems with family reunion together and created one voice to reach decision makers.

In 2020 As You Open Your Eyes will capture the stories of what happens when asylum seekers bring their talents to strengthen their new society.
