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

The MOST Project (2008)


Promoting Independence in Living

The Most Project (Modelling of Orientation, Services and training related to the Resettlement and Reception of Refugess) was a transnational project funded by the European Refugee Fund. It started in December 2006 and concluded in January 2008. The project was led by the Ministry of Labour in Finland and the project partners were the Reception and Integration Agency, Ireland, the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Spain and the Swedish Migration Board, Sweden. The project was implemented in cooperation with the UNHCR,  IOM and ECRE.

 The overall purpose of the project was to develop comprehensive models for quicker and better integration of refugees. This included testing new practises and approaches related to the selection of refugees, orientation upon their arrival and introduction to the structures and habits of the host society. By developing these actions we hoped to create a resettlement process that would support the integration of refugees into the new host society.
