ICMC has published this week its report “Building a Resettlement Network of European Cities and Regions – Experiences of the SHARE Network 2012-2015”. 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.

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.
