It is a two-way process that helps create an environment of respect for diversity and equality.


Integration is the creation of free space where the stranger can enter as a friend and not an enemy; where diversity is celebrated and not feared; where equality is a foundation and not just a sound bite.

The ultimate benefit is the active participation of all residents of Ireland in society, irrespective of cultural or religious background, age, gender or nationality.
