Although national governments are responsible for the selection of resettled refugees, regional and local authorities play a central role in offering reception and integration support once refugees have arrived. The success of national refugee resettlement programmes – and of the future Joint EU Resettlement Programme - thus depends on the commitment, ability and partnerships of cities, municipalities and regions.
The overall objective of the SHARE project is to build a European resettlement network of cities, municipalities and regions. The SHARE network is an integral part of the wider EU Resettlement Network, and facilitates the inclusion of local and regional actors in the network as new resettlement stakeholders.
The SHARE project offers opportunities for structured dialogue, exchange of practice and networking between cities and regional actors, and between experienced and emerging resettlement countries planning or considering resettlement.
