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.

    El papel de los servicios públicos en la integración de los refugiados y los solicitantes de asilo

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Los Estados miembros se enfrentaron a una serie de retos relacionados con la integración de los recién llegados a los países de acogida tras la afluencia de más de tres millones de solicitantes de asilo a la Unión Europea en el trienio de 2015 a 2017. En el presente informe se explora el papel de los servicios públicos (concretamente, la vivienda, los servicios sociales, la asistencia sanitaria y los servicios educativos) en la integración social y económica de los refugiados y los solicitantes de asilo. Su objetivo es identificar los factores que obstaculizan este proceso y los elementos que contribuyen al éxito de la integración. La atención se centra en general en los países de destino, concretamente, en los tres países más afectados por la afluencia de refugiados y solicitantes de asilo: Austria, Alemania y Suecia.
