Accem's observatories network

Abstract : ACCEM is an NGO that works in favour of refugees and immigrants in Spain. Since 1996 ACCEM develops a strategy of observation articulating the national observation with the local observatories. The objective of the local observatories is to improve the services offered to the migrants thanks to a better knowledge of their needs. Using the tools of intelligence territorial CATALYSIS as well as the trees of knowledge. Since 1996 the Gorion national observatory gathers in Madrid the individual data of migrants from the regional centres and from the different programmes carried our by ACCEM. It provides a wider knowledge of the migrants and their different profiles of demands. It allows a better programming of the actions thus. It is also possible to answer the demands of information of the administration, the economy, the local centres or the action programmes. In the same way, two local observatories have been developed in Gijon and Siguënza in partnership with the local services and public associations. The objective was to answer in a more global way to the needs of the migrants while establishing and reinforcing the synergies between the services in the respect of the local specificities. They improved in a considerable way the knowledge of the migrant population in their diversity within the communities. They allowed us to put in practice the adapted individual answers but also to improve the well-being of the territorial communities. They developed new observatories "satellites" respectively in Oviedo and in Guadalajara. Since 2004 ACCEM projects to develop a network of local observatories larger on the basis of these experiences. The objective is to harmonize a common language, to widen the vision of the needs and to improve the joint between the three levels: local, regional and national. In a first time, the CATALYSIS tools has been harmonized to the level of setting the observatories. They are used from now on by two new observatories in Seville , Léon, and Girona. The project e-gorrion now aims to put on line the tools to make them more accessible and to develop some answers in real time.
