On 3rd of October 2013, the European Resettlement Network, with the support of the National Network Focal Point in the Netherlands, Mia McKenzie of IOM, organized its first thematic and regional event: Emergency Resettlement Explained - the Dutch Experience in The Hague.
The event briefly introduced the project 'Strengthening the response to emergency resettlement needs' with an overview from UNHCR on emergency and urgent resettlement in Europe. Following this introduction, the focus was on emergency resettlement in practice in the Dutch context. In the first panel, the process of emergency resettlement in the Netherlands was discussed, followed by a second panel which examined emergency resettlement in practice at the local level, highlighting a resettled refugee's experience.
