Summary of Selection Criteria in Refugee Resettlement: balancing vulnerability and future integration in eight settlement countries

This report compares refugee resettlement programs in eight countries: Norway, Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Sweden, and the Netherlands. The study examines how each country determines their selection criteria for UNHCR resettled refugees and how they balance the consideration of future integration in the host society against the humanitarian goal of protecting the most vulnerable refugees.

The views expressed are those of the author/s, and are not attributable to the host organisations of the Resettlement.Plus website.
