Building Knowledge for a Concerted and Sustainable Approach to Refugee Resettlement in the EU and its Member States

Decision: Resettlement in 2012 - Distribution of places, strategic and operational assessments (GDA 6/2012)

Legal and administrative framework

Abstract

This Migration Board Decision (dated 23/01/2012) regulates the Swedish resettlement programme for 2012. The quota of resettlement and its geographic distribution was shaped by the following considerations:

1. UNHCR requests for destinations and target groups in accordance with “UNHCR Projected Global Resettlement Needs 2012”;

2. Sweden's willingness to contribute to solving protracted refugee situations and the desire to use resettlement strategically;

3. Sweden's ability to act quickly to resettle people with urgent needs;

4. Sweden's ability to use the dossier selection method fairly extensively.
