The national Country Reports were presented to the national Advisory Committee for consultation, and copies of the final version were provided to the Advisory Committee also. The six national Advisory Committees that have been set up in each of the Partner Countries are a crucial channel for the dissemination of information about the Project and of the Project outcomes. The Advisory Committees will continue to meet throughout the Project, will be informed about the Project Website, and will also disseminate the final Project Handbook.
Two very positive outcomes of the One-Stop-Shop Project have already resulted in terms of dissemination among Government actors: In order to consider the development of a One-Stop-Shop for immigrant services in their respective countries, a Delegation from the Ministry of the Interior of Greece, and a Delegation including the Minister of State for Integration Policy of Ireland, visited ACIDI, I.P.?s National Immigrant Support Centre in Lisbon, on 3 March 2008 and 11 March 2008, respectively.
The National Immigrant Support Centre was also visited by a Swedish delegation including the Queen of Sweden and the Minister for Integration in May 2008, and by the First Lady of?Ukraine?in June 2008. In December 2008, at the request of certain diplomatic representatives, a group of Ambassadors, Consuls and other diplomats visited the National Immigrant Support Centre in Lisbon.
The three Transnational Workshops in Dublin, Athens and Berlin were open to the public and, together with the Final Conference in Lisbon in February 2009,?provide further publicity for the project.
