Geneva, 10 March 2015 - The Syrian refugee crisis has reached a saturation point: it cannot be overcome unless the global community increases its support. This is the core message which emerges by a report released last week by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

The report, titled "Refuge and Hope in the Time of ISIS: The Urgent need for Protection, Humanitarian Support, and Durable Solutions in Turkey, Bulgaria, and Greece", follows a mission in the Middle East by a USCCB delegation, in late 2014. During the mission, the delegation observed the challenges that Syrians experience seeking protection in host countries, while also facing the risk of being turned away and forced back to danger.

Brussels, 11 June 2014 - In order to inspire creative solutions and new initiatives in housing for refugee resettlement, ICMC Europe and the North West Gateway Resettlement Partnership of the UK announce the publication of "A Place to Live, a Place to Stay: A Good Practice Guide for Housing in Refugee Resettlement".

The publication is produced in the framework of the SHARE Network, an ICMC-led initiative to build a network of European regions, cities and their civil society partners involved in and/or with a commitment to refugee resettlement, integration and protection.

Geneva, 31 July 2013 - Since 2007, ICMC, UNHCR and IOM have worked closely together to strengthen and increase EU resettlement through the development of the European Resettlement Network.

Successful resettlement incorporates a wide range of activities, from initial identification and registration of refugees, to pre-departure arrangements and subsequent reception and integration in local communities."Welcome to Europe" is a resource that illustrates how these different phases “link” together to make resettlement a solution that works for both refugees and their new communities.

Geneva, 24 May 2012 - The "Addressing gaps in child protection" report was prepared for the UNHCR-ICMC Child Protection Workshop, held in Washington D.C. in May 2012. It points to the challenges that ICMC child protection experts encounter in refugee field operations and proposes a road map for addressing these concerns.

The challenges identified in this report are drawn from the first-hand experience of ICMC’s child protection experts in the field and include - among others - the need for strengthening the capacity of local partners, improving the identification of unaccompanied minors, and deploying child protection experts at the beginning of an emergency operation.
