The project partners were the Ministry of Labour, Finland and the Reception and Integration Agency, Ireland. It was done in cooperation with the UNHCR and the IOM and ECRE.

The aim of the project was to develop comprehensive models for the resettlement process which can be utilised by other EU Member States. The main outcome of the project was the production of the practical guide to the resettlement process, link below.
