K4D Helpdesk Report

A Mapping of Refugee Resettlement Schemes

Published on 18 April 2018

A range of refugee resettlement efforts take place across all of the countries covered in this report. Common themes include the accepting of Syrian refugees for resettlement, collaboration with (but not always limited to) the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to identify eligible entrants, the existence of government-led national schemes and the presence of integration and settling services. Differences exist in the presence of private sponsorship and community-led schemes, eligibility criteria and country priorities.
Reflecting the structure of the report and in tabular format, a summary of comparative findings is below. The main body of the report is then organised on a country-by-country basis.
