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

Feasibility study about the setting up of resettlement schemes in the EU (2003)

EU funded projects

The 'Study on the Feasibility of setting up resettlement schemes in EU Member States or at EU Level, against the background of the Common European Asylum system and the goal of a Common Asylum Procedure' has been carried out by the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) on behalf of the European Commission (Directorate General for Justice and Home Affairs).

This study aimed at identifying conditions for drawing up EC instruments which would include rules on resettlement in all Member States or at EU level. The European Commission specified that such instruments had to be compatible with the long term objectives of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) and support efforts to improve the management of forced migration movements, facilitating legal access to international protection by those justifiably seeking such protection.
