World Refugee Day - 20 June 2012 - Lunch event, Brussels, Belgium

For many years, European municipalities, cities and regions have provided the welcoming, safe and supportive communities in which resettled refugees can begin their new lives as European citizens. Many others are beginning their resettlement journey, or considering their participation in resettlement in the near future. Our lunchtime programme of speakers and short films introduced refugee resettlement in Europe, highlighted the successes of cities and regions in advocating for more and better resettlement in Europe and presented the opportunities for city and regional involvement in ICMC’s SHARE city network and the wider EU Resettlement Network.
