The project I:CUD (Internet: Creatively Unveiling Discrimination) co-financed by the ‘DG Justice: Fundamental Rights & Citizenship Programme’ of the European Commission, seeks to raise awareness and explore innovative ways of combating discrimination online, especially on social network sites (sns), by paying attention to its hidden manifestations. I:CUD is responding to an urgent need to carry out more research and projects about the phenomenon at EU level, as so far not enough have been done.
Implemented by six project partners (5 grassroot organizations and 1 university) from five EU countries: Belgium, Italy, Romania, the United Kingdom and Spain, the project aims to provide a practical guide on how to unveil masked discriminatory practices: to show a way of becoming creative internet “prosumers”, who do not just passively “consume discriminatory contents” but actively produce material counteracting such conducts.
Pilot sessions with youths in five EU countries, will offer space to test the methodology and I:CUD results, such as an anti-discrimination-pack for training environments, which will raise awareness as well as stimulate youths to become proactive online users, who detect, react and act against discrimination online.

In line with its activities in the field of citizenship, Pour la Solidarité wishes to promote the European Citizen Initiative “Let me Vote” which aims to reduce the democratic deficit by granting all mobile Europeans the right to vote not only in local and European elections, but also in regional and national elections in the State in which they live.

Whatever the reason, European citizens are often moving and settling down in European member states other than their country of origin but their participation in the democratic life of their immigration countries remains very low.
This is why the European think tank Pour la Solidarité and 5 other European partners set up the project ‘Access to Rights and Civil Dialogue for All’, co-financed by the DG justice programme “Fundamental rights and citizenship” whose main aim was to address the lack of migrants’ participation to the political life of the host countries.
For this project, the partnership drafter a Comparative study on "Political and Social Integration of Migrant Communities". This study is a comparison of national studies that were conducted in the member states involved in the project. Each of these national studies focused on a specific migrant community: Portuguese migrants living in France, Polish migrants living in Belgium, Bulgarian migrants living in Greece and Romanian migrants living in Italy and Spain.
