We warmly welcome you to our webinar on community sponsorship: “Let’s make the integration of refugees a success”. Many believe integration is hard. It doesn’t have to be and it should not be a struggle to do the right thing. 

Community sponsorship is a refugee resettlement programme with local people at its heart. Resettlement is the term used to describe what happens when a refugee is moved from a host country in which they have sought asylum to a country that has the capacity to support them in the long term. And it is a safe route to the EU, unlike so many others.

Spend 45 minutes with us from 16:30 to 17:15 on the 14th October. Together with the experts David Manicom from UNHCR and Caitlin Katsiaficas from ICMPD and guests from the PES in the Committee of Regions, we will explore how much easier we could make it for refugees and for ourselves.
