Role of the organization in the project:
OKAY served as the applicant organisation. As the applicant organisation, it took on the responsibility for the coordination and management of the project. It was responsible for the expertise in knowledge and competences related to questions of integration and immigration in all phases of the project. The thorough knowledge of and involvement in regional integration activities and politics was an important prerequisite to bringing together the needs of immigrants, as the new target group, and public libraries, as important institutions of learning on the local and communal level.
