A comparative analysis of the National Integration Evaluation Mechanism in 14 EU countries
A new EU-funded study shows huge differences in the quality of refugee integration policies in European countries, despite standards set by EU and international law. Europe is far from providing a level playing field for refugees to achieve a better life.
The study presents a comparative, indicator-based assessment of the refugee integration frameworks in 14 countries: Czechia, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden. Though Europe’s main way to provide global durable solutions to refugees is through long-term integration, the study written for the “National Integration Evaluation Mechanism (NIEM)” reveals how Member State policies largely fail to deliver on this promise and a lack of harmonisation on refugee integration across the EU.
