Building a Resettlement Network of European Cities and Regions - Experiences of the SHARE Network 2012-2015 (ICMC)

The ICMC has conduct a project called SHARE to build a European resettlement network. Here is the final report.

Over the past 4 years, the SHARE project has built a European resettlement network of regions, cities and their civil society partners, engaging over 1,200 actors, with the objectives of promoting refugee protection and resettlement and a culture of welcome, and improving planning and coordination for refugee reception and integration in Europe.

Particularly with regard to resettlement, SHARE has sought to:

  • increase the number of resettlement programmes and places offered by European countries;
  • encourage the engagement of local actors to support, sustain and coordinate these programmes;
  • ensure high-quality reception and integration measures that are responsive to the needs and aspirationsof resettled refugees; and
  • develop peer-learning, best practice exchange and capacity-building activities between experienced, emerging and new resettlement countries.

The report provides an overview of the policy reflections, tools, resources and recommendations produced during 4 years of SHARE Network learning. The SHARE Network lessons suggest that all countries can effectively develop successful resettlement policies and programmes, if properly planned and coordinated among the different stakeholders.
