Brussels, 15 July 2016 - On the backdrop of increasingly strong nationalist and xenophobic movements gaining more and more support throughout the old continent, a publication jointly produced by ICMC Europe and FORIM in collaboration with CONCORD and Caritas Europa attempts to debunk a set of common myths on incoming refugees and migrants.

The brochure, which is titled “10 Myths on Migration and Development”, aims to deconstruct popular misconceptions by providing reliable facts and figures and thus countering negative assumptions.

Brussels, 3 May 2016 - In order to gather and capitalize on the wide expertise gained over the past four years through the work of the ICMC-led SHARE Network, ICMC Europe published the report “Building a Resettlement Network of European Cities and Regions: Experiences of the SHARE Network 2012-2015”.

Active from 2012 to 2015, the SHARE Network brought together a variety of actors involved in refugee resettlement in Europe which worked jointly to facilitate the protection and integration of incoming refugees, as well as to promote a culture of welcome across the continent.

Geneva, 7 July 2015 - A new report issued by ICMC calls on governments worldwide to admit within their borders, by the end of 2020, 10% of the 4 million Syrian refugees uprooted in Turkey and the Middle East.

The report, entitled “10% of refugees from Syria: Europe’s resettlement and other admission responses in a global perspective” and supported by ICMC’s President Peter Sutherland, encourages States to offer resettlement places and other types of admission to 400,000 Syrians currently seeking refuge in neighboring countries.

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.
