Resumé

Following the influx of over three million asylum seekers into the European Union in the three-year period 2015–2017, Member States faced a number of challenges related to integrating the newly arrived into their country. This report explores the role of public services – specifically housing, social services, health and education services – in the social and economic integration of refugees and asylum seekers. It aims to identify the factors that hinder this process and the elements that contribute to successful integration. The overall focus is on destination countries, particularly the three countries most affected by the inflow of refugees and asylum seekers: Austria, Germany and Sweden.

    Offentlige tjenesters rolle i integrationen af flygtninge og asylansøgere

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Efter tilstrømningen af over tre millioner asylansøgere til Den Europæiske Union i den treårige periode mellem 2015 og 2017 stod medlemsstaterne over for en række udfordringer i forbindelse med integrationen af de nytilkomne i deres land. I denne rapport undersøges den rolle, som de offentlige tjenester — navnlig boliger, sociale tjenesteydelser, sundhedsydelser og uddannelse — spiller for flygtninges og asylansøgeres sociale og økonomiske integration. Den har til formål at identificere de faktorer, der står i vejen for denne proces, og de elementer, der bidrager til en vellykket integration. Det overordnede fokus er på bestemmelseslandene, navnlig de tre lande, der er mest berørt af tilstrømningen af flygtninge og asylansøgere, nemlig Østrig, Tyskland og Sverige.
