What is the Immigration Platform
Under the agreement signed by the Immigration Platform partners, the following objectives were defined:

Integrate, promote and disseminate
The Platform for Policies on Immigrant Reception and Integration (Platform for Immigration), launched on 21 November 2006, aims to be an example of joint action by civil society partners (Foundations, employers' associations, members of the Economic and Social Council and Religious Confessions ) with direct or indirect intervention in the reception and integration of migrants in Portugal.
It is intended to demonstrate that organized civil society, much more than the sum of the parties, can be the key to success and facilitating the integration of difference and the promotion of a society more tolerant and valorizing human rights.
