ARUs are multidisciplinary groups set up in each partner city and distributed throughout Central-Eastern (Hungary), Southern (Spain and Italy) and Northern (Finland) parts of Europe, Eastern Europe from Asia (Turkey) and Middle East (Jordan, Lebanon). The locally based Units collaborate with local organisations to explore the potential conflict and intrinsic difficulties of addressing both the local demands of society on the issues of FDP inclusion, and the local and global demands to contribute to a more equitable and sustainable society.

ARUs are responsible for gathering information that characterise the migrants and their lives, as well as related institutions and societal actors to define the novel concept of Vulnerability Context. The types of data collected include sensitive ones, such as gender, age, ethnicity, health, sexual lifestyle, political opinion, and religious or philosophical conviction.

Moreover, ARU are also responsible for:

  • Co-creation of research activities where all relevant stakeholders play an active role in its definition, execution and evaluation (RRI approach)
  • set up, test the TAISsTailored Attention and Inclusion Practices’ for their specific Vulnerability Contexts and provide the relevant feedback.
  • apply the gender perspective and the ethical issues by undertaking advocacy-focused participatory action-research, grounded in human rights and socio-ecological models
