The framework programme « Solidarity and Management of migratory flows » is implemented through four specific funds :
- the « European Refugee Fund»,
- the « External Borders Fund »,
- the « Integration Fund for Third Countries »,
- the « Return Fund ».
Of these four funds the « Integration Fund for Third Countries » is the most likely to be of interest to cultural operators since the projects submitted must increase civic, cultural and political participation of third country nationals in the host society.
