Project Description

The project supports the creation of a transnational observatory for exchanging information and practice and for strengthening cooperation on resettlement among Member States, to the purpose of enhancing the knowledge of a durable solution in favour of refugees, improving the ongoing resettlement programs and promoting the implementation of these kind of programs in MS who do not carry out resettlement initiatives.

UNHCR estimates in the world about 800.000 refugees looking for durable solutions in need of international protection, while 80.000 people only found effective help through a resettlement program. The TORRE project aims at disseminating a stronger solidarity culture in favour of refugees among Member States by strengthening the ongoing resettlement programs and supporting the development of such durable solution in those countries that have none.
