European Commission - Press release
Brussels, 6 September 2017
In four progress reports adopted today, the Commission is calling on all parties to sustain and further accelerate the good progress made in managing irregular migration flows, protecting the EU external borders and supporting the frontline Member States under pressure.
La Commission a proposé aujourd'hui la création d'un «programme européen commun de réinstallation». Ce programme vise à faire de la réinstallation dans l'UE un instrument plus efficace de protection des réfugiés, en renforçant la coopération politique et pratique entre les États membres. Cette initiative concerne la réinstallation dans un État membre de réfugiés se trouvant dans des pays tiers .
What is resettlement and why is it needed?
A large majority of refugees worldwide find themselves in places far away from the EU. They are to be found in countries neighbouring, or in the same region, as their country of origin, in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. By the end of 2008, developing countries hosted 8.4 million refugees, 80 per cent of the global refugee population, with Pakistan alone hosting 1.8 million refugees and Syria 1.1 million. As host countries are often developing ones, with limited resources, they cannot integrate large numbers of refugees.
Brussels, 2 September 2009 - Today the European Commission proposed the establishment of a "Joint EU Resettlement Programme". This programme aims to develop resettlement within the EU into a more effective instrument to give protection to refugees, providing for closer political and practical cooperation among EU Member States. This initiative concerns the resettlement of refugees from third countries to an EU Member State.
