to IRC European Resettlement & Integration Technical Assistance (EURITA)

EURITA provides information on our Resettlement & Integration Technical Assistance work in the European region. With a focus on strengthening the capacity of integration practitioners to deliver post-arrival cultural orientation and to engage the communities in which they work, the EURITA project seeks to support the integration of refugees resettled in EU member states. Initial EURITA funding came from the U.S. Department of State. The project was funded by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Home and Migration Affairs between 2019-2021 and led by the International Rescue Committee (IRC), Belgium, together with partners Conselho Português para os Refugiados in Portugal, Fundatia Schottener Servicii Sociale in Romania and Accem in Spain. A final evaluation report of the AMIF funded project can be downloaded here.
