The GENERAL AIM of BRIDGE-IT project is to create formal and informal learning opportunities to bridge ICC problems in this context.
Create face-to-face and online training courses, for both relational parties involved in 'first-impact' bureaucratic-institutional interactions: ACMs (public officials, police and border officers, social workers etc. dealing with newly arrived migrants) and AMs (e.g. refugees, migrants to be regularised, asylum seekers), on the basis of a collection of real-life communication materials (video recordings, written texts, forms, etc.) from a range of bureaucratic-institutional contexts from different countries (EU and candidate).
Provide an easily accessible and adaptable depository of multilingual text material with linguistic and cultural information for a better terminological understanding, as a service for both ACMs and AMs.
Identify ICC best practices in bureaucratic-institutional settings.
the online training courses and resources give ICC skills promoting mutual understanding, guaranteeing a major accessibility also after the project period;
the multilingual text depository is meant to be an online service, giving language- and cultural-specific information for ACMs and AMs;
the best communication practice exhibition establishes communication models to be disseminated worldwide;
creating the conditions to foster active citizenship makes it also possible to reach mutual integration and respect, thereby providing the basis for intercultural dialogue and for anti-racist pedagogies.
