Following a virtual event on 15 April, 2021 entitled “Insights from EURITA: ‘the role of capacity building in growing resettlement in the EU”, the International Rescue Committee is pleased to share the EURITA final evaluation report. The report analyses data from the European Union AMIF funded European Resettlement and Integration Technical Assistance (EURITA) project and draws on lessons learned and experiences over the past two years. The project supported more than 600 practitioners across the EU to enhance their resettlement and integration programming by strengthening the delivery of post-arrival cultural orientation and engaging the communities in which they work. Of those who participated in a EURITA activity, 100% found the training activities useful and 96% reported increased knowledge of the training topic.
Key learnings include the need for continued professional development opportunities for the wide variety of actors who serve resettled refugees through the sharing of global best practice, contextualized support, and providing peer learning opportunities. The report also outlines the significance of continued EU support in fostering these initiatives at a transnational level.
You can download the full report which includes; an executive summary outlining the context of the project, the evaluation methodology, the main findings of the project, lessons learned, best practices and concluding remarks.
