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

MOST project: Promoting Independence in Resettlement - Final report (2008)

EU funded projects

This report describes activities carried out within the MOST project (Modelling of Orientation, Services and Training related to the Resettlement and Reception of Refugees), which focused on the quality of post-resettlement integration services.

MOST was a transnational project funded by the European Refugee Fund (duration: 2006-2008). The Ministry of Labour in Finland led the project and the project partners were the Reception and Integration Agency, Ireland, the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Spain and the Migration Board, Sweden. The project was implemented in cooperation with the UNHCR,IOM and the European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE). The project highlighted the need to encourage an active participation of resettled refugees in the integration of other resettled refugees, and the need to assist refugees to become self-sufficient as early as possible in accessing mainstreamed services, while ensuring that such services are adapted to the individual needs and capacities of the refugee.
