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.

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.
