European Migration Network (2013) Ad-Hoc Query on allocation of refugees to municipalities for integration purposes
Intended to facilitate information exchange between EU member states, the European Migration Network (EMN) provides an interesting comparison of policy and practice (See European Migration Network) across EU Member States. Their Ad-Hoc Query on allocation of refugees to municipalities for integration purposes (2013) offers a useful resource for anyone wishing to gain a quick overview of other European regions’ policy on refugee dispersal and housing. Two questions are key to the research. The first question is: Does the member state regulate the dispersal of refugees and other persons that have been granted protection to municipalities once they have received a residence permit? The second question is: Does the member state share the Swedish experience of a general shortage of available housing for newly arrived migrants? Responses from the 23 member states who participated are presented the UK is included as a respondent. See also European Migration Network (2012) for member states responses to questions on linguistic integration.
