European Social Inclusion Initiative

Hosted by J-PAL Europe at the Paris School of Economics in collaboration with Community Jameel and Porticus, the European Social Inclusion Initiative (ESII) aims to evaluate programs and policies that can help foster the social inclusion of migrants and refugees in Europe.

In Europe, children from immigrant backgrounds are twice as likely to grow up in poverty as children with native-born parents

ESII seeks to understand how migrants can overcome barriers to social inclusion


ESII focuses on evidence-based assessments to determine which policies work best and why
