Evaluation du CAI: caractéristiques des participants

Détails du projet


Since 2011, the Ministère de la Famille, de l'Intégration et à la Grande Région has been offering a voluntary integration program to resident immigrants, who are at least 16 years old, called Contrat d'Accueil et d'Intégration (CAI). In its original form, this program is composed of three parts: (1) a general orientation day explaining the country's public administrations to the participants; (2) a civic course explaining the organization of the institutional setting and everyday life customs in Luxembourg and (3) the provision of vouchers enabling access to subsidized language courses in one of Luxembourg's three official languages. The CAI is currently being reformed, which provides an opportunity to evaluate how participating in the program might have impacted the integration (on the labor market, housing market, societal life?) of participants. A first step in this evaluation is to explore the data gathered by the Ministry between 2011 and today. In particular, a first objective of the project is to understand which groups of potential participants signed the contract and which populations were more difficult to reach. In order to understand the selection into participation, this project aims to use IGSS data supplemented with an indicator for being a signatory of the contract obtained from MIFA data. This information will allow comparing participants based on observables (age, gender, education, nationality-group, geographical location, family composition?) to the general targeted population in order to identify characteristics associated with high and low take-up to the voluntary program. In a second step, this project will explore possibilities to implement an evaluation of the causal effect of participating in the CAI on different outcomes measurable through administrative data (employment, housing?) or through a new original survey (well-being, integration sentiments?).
