MiRi – Mobile Interaction for Refugee Integration University of Luxembourg - Interdisciplinary Center for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT)

The research project “Mobile Interaction for Refugee Integration – (MiRi) / L’interaction mobile au service de l’intégration (iMi)” strives to develop digital support activities for asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection.

The main object is to create a mobile communication and learning tool to run on mobile devices. The “youarewelcome.lu” platform offers interactive and multilingual features in relation to topics such as application procedure for international protection, basic needs and demands, integration into the Luxembourgish society, localisation of resources, language learning or interactive storytelling.

In a first phase, the tool will grant easy and appropriate access to electronic resources offered by ministries and support organisations in Luxembourg.

A more advanced version will be developed based on a needs analysis and the exchange with all stakeholders, i.e. the refugee community, support professionals and volunteers. It will provide features of multimodal communication, content co-creation, video-collaboration and mutual learning between migrants and residents. The flexible architecture of the portal allows to include any functionality that might result from the ongoing review of its use.

Target population:
– Applicants for international protection
– Beneficiaries of international protection
– Residents as professionals or volunteers in the field of “Asylum, Miration and Integration”
– Residents looking for information about procedures, activities and information in relation to the asylum seeker and refugee community

Duration of the project: 07/16 – 06/19
