This inform provides up-to-date and comparative data on resettlement, humanitarian admission and sponsorship schemesInform presents recent developments in EMN Member Countries between 2016 to 2022 and offers a valuable resource for countries launching new programmes to learn from established programmes in other countries. Moreover, it aims to complement and enhance other knowledge-sharing initiatives in the field.
The majority of EMN Member Countries have implemented resettlement programmes between 2016 and 2022, although experiences vary greatly. Most EMN Member Countries operate national resettlement programmes, which set quotas at a national level for the number of refugees they will receive on an annual or multi-annual basis. About half of the responding EMN Member Countries have carried out humanitarian admission schemes in the period of 2016-2022.
Key challenges affecting the implementation of resettlement, humanitarian admission, and sponsorship schemes include pre-arrival issues like the unstable security situation in certain countries of first asylum, lack of housing, and high drop-out rates from resettlement programs.The COVID-19 pandemic has also created additional obstacles in this regard.
