Newsletter 1: Linking-In EU Resettlement
Issued by the joint IOM, UNHCR and ICMC project “Linking in EU Resettlement”, the quarterly LINKIN IN Newsletter provides information on European Union developments in the area of resettlement. The first issue focuses on the situation in North Africa and the urgent need to increase resettlement of refugees from Libya, especially inviting the EU member states to urgently deploy increased support and solidarity. It also informs on the recent decision in Germany to start a three year resettlement programme of 300 places annually. We hope that the programme will become more significant and that Germany will become a steady player in EU resettlement. In 2009 Germany resettled 2.501 refugees from Iraq in one year.
