Access Without Fear: Building a City of Sanctuary

Providing access to city services to non-status or undocumented immigrants reduces fear of deportation while contributing to wider community safety and well-being.

The Living Together collection @ Cities of Migration showcases innovative local practices that promote social inclusion, participation and intercultural dialogue. This includes practices, strategies and initiatives in the following areas:

  • social cohesion, equality and nondiscrimination;
  • belonging, identity and interaction;
  • intercultural dialogue;
  • participation and citizenship; and participatory approaches that strengthen engagement between civil society and local government institutions.

The Living Together collection builds on the work of the Open Society Foundations’ At Home inEurope project.
