1. The Declaration was agreed at the European Ministerial Conference on Integration in Zaragoza of 15 and 16 April 2010. Council Conclusions incorporating the Declaration were adopted at the Justice and Home Affairs Council of 3-4 June 2010.

2. Employment and education are key parts in the integration process. Further development of the concept of 'human capital' should ensure a cross-sectoral approach, including programmes for education, employment and lifelong learning.

3. Comprehensive participation requires appropriate cooperation and coordination between different levels of government and public administration (European, national, regional and local). National Contact Points on Integration play an important role in promoting the integration of immigrants at both European Union and EU Member State level.

4. With regard to the evaluation of integration policies the declaration includes suggestions to further develop integration indicators based on qualitative or subjective data, they should complement the existing indicators in the four policy: employment, education, social inclusion and active citizenship.
