Objectives: To optimize the reception of migrants, ensure their access to civil rights, their citizenship of the city of Nantes, and fight against discrimination.
Activities: The city facilitates engagement from migrant communities in its policy-making processes and removes barriers to participation. A ‘volontarist’ policy was developed to welcome and integrate migrants coming to Nantes. The «Mission Egalité Intégration Citoyenneté» is integrated into Nantes’ public policy, with regards to foreigners. Coprod Migrants CNCE is the centre of the Coprod Migrants project. In 2004, the community of Nantes created an authority of foreigners' participation called the CNCE (Nantes Council for the Citizenship of Foreigners). The main objective of this authority is to lead the city to build a welcome and integration's public policy through the active involvement of foreigners themselves.
