Refugee resettlement to Hungary

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 3 marzo 2010

March 2010 in Budapest brought together  representatives of the Hungarian government, the UN refugee agency UNHCR, civil society organisations and other EU member states. The debate was the last in a series of debates on refugee resettlement, which the Churches Commission for Migrants in Europe (CCME) organised in 2009-10 with partners across the EU.  The debate, which was co-organised by the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, took place in a setting largely influenced by the recent discussions on an EU resettlement programme, in particular the respective proposals currently debated in the European Parliament.  The round table debate in particular looked at the interplay of national policies and EU cooperation in selection, reception and integration of resettled refugees. Representatives of Sweden and Belgium shared insights on national resettlement programmes and underlined the  importance which resettlement had and has in their recent and upcoming EU presidency.  Considerable attention was devoted to taking stock of the particular situation of newer EU  member states engaging in resettlement: representatives of the Czech and the Romanian government reported about the resettlement programmes, which their countries had started in the last two years. While Hungarian government representatives expressed doubt that Hungary would commit to a resettlement programme prior to the general election taking place in April,  participants underlined the usefulness of such regional exchange, which would provide for “important lessons to be learnt”
