This working paper is examining the role that Refugee-Led Organisations (RLOs) can play in contributing to finding policy and practical solutions to refugee issues. Based on a literature review and interview with different stakeholders, including policy-makers and RLO representatives from different EU Member States, it analyses why RLOs are not practically involved in the development, evaluation and discussion of asylum and integration policies/practices at the EU level and how the major challenges they face can be addressed.
