What can Britain learn about refugee integration from high-income countries

1 February 2021
Online

Convened by: APPG on Migration

A virtual APPG on Migration event.

4:00pm – 5:00pm

As one of the biggest donors to resettlement efforts and with a strong record of welcoming refugees, there is much to celebrate about Britain’s recent efforts in providing safe refuge for some of the world’s most vulnerable people. However, as the Government explores what ‘global Britain’ looks like in practice, this is an opportune moment to consider an approach to integration that reflects our values and draws on examples of best practice from other high-income countries. A rigorous and effective integration process will increase public confidence and give new arrivals the best possible chance to participate in their community and become economically active, tax-paying members of society.

Following an introduction from the chair, this event will feature a presentation on the findings of a new report published by the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), focusing on the importance of a swift asylum process, dispersing refugees strategically in different parts of the country, language training, and access to employment and welfare support. This will be followed by responses from the panellists and a Q&A session.

Registration is free, but essential. Register through Eventbrite.

This report was produced by COMPAS and the Good Faith Partnership, with funding from Unbound Philanthropy and the Migration Foundation.

Chair: David Simmonds MP
