The EU and its citizens faced enormous challenges in 2012 as the limited economic recovery of the previous year stalled, GDP fell and unemployment began to grow again. As this yearbook on Living and working in Europe 2012 describes, one of the starkest findings was the divergence between and within countries. Some Member States have suffered greatly while others have not. Higher-paid jobs have been much more resilient than low to mid-paid jobs and have grown. Groups that were already vulnerable have suffered more in the crisis and countries have diverged on quality of life measures.

This report briefly summarises the policy relevant experiences of the CLIP network (cities for local integration policy) of more than 35 European cities in 22 countries over a period of five years from 2006 to 2010. CLIP was founded with the objective of improving local integration policy for migrants in European cities through an innovative exchange of experience and new ways of learning between the participating cities in order to deliver a more effective integration policy. The four research modules over the five-year period covered issues such as housing, diversity, intercultural policies and ethnic entrepreneurship. The lessons learnt and the conclusions drawn from the results of each research module have also contributed to the national and the European debate on integration. The unique character of the CLIP network is that it organised a shared learning process between the participating cities, between the cities and a group of expert European research centres as well as between policymakers at the local and European level.

Over four decades since it was initially established to respond to the need for reliable, impartial, evidence-based research and analysis on issues of key socioeconomic policy, Eurofound’s role remains as relevant today. Facing some of its greatest challenges yet, the social and economic implications for Europe are immense and far reaching. More than ever, policymakers require high-quality, comparative and timely information to help them debate, influence, develop and shape a better future for all citizens across the European Union. Eurofound’s role is to serve these decision-makers by responding to their information needs in the key areas of living and working conditions and managing change. Eurofound’s communication strategy provides the framework and overall direction for carrying out this work.
