CCP Refugees and Migration

With the funding programme CCP Refugees and Migration ifa reacts to recent developments and urgent needs in the field of refugee work and migration in Germany and abroad. The programme is a new and adapted concept of the CrossCulture programme (CCP).

Areas and target groups

CCP Refugees and Migration is aimed at employees of non-governmental organisations, government agencies and organisations in the field of refugee work and migration in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey and Germany. Working areas include civil conflict resolution, (re-)integration and empowerment of the civil society, amongst others. ifa assigns 14 scholarships for a period of five to eight weeks from September to November 2016. The scholarship is linked with a job-related stay abroad with a hosting organisation.

After the internship, all scholarship holders meet for a one-week-forum in Berlin (expected in the first or second week of November). This forum offers the possibility of professional and personal exchange, further training and networking activities.

ifa is responsible for the organisation and the costs of the programme. The host organisation will not have any financial obligations. In addition to travel, accommodation and insurance expenses, each participant will receive a monthly allowance.
