New EMN inform explores prospects for displaced persons in non-EU first reception and transit countries

28 February 2023

More than half of responding EMN Member Countries have strategies and policies in place to enhance the prospects of displaced persons in non-EU countries of first reception and transit. The objectives range from reducing the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement to the promotion of dignity, self-reliance and human rights of forcibly displaced persons and host communities.

As of May 2022, more than 100 million people around the world were forcibly displaced. Many refugees usually remain in countries neighbouring their place of origin, which are mostly low- and middle-income areas. Although these countries have the responsibility to provide humanitarian support to displaced people, often they lack the resources or capacity to do so. That is why international actors, as well as civil society organisations are of paramount importance.

The inform Prospects for displaced persons in non-EU first reception and transit countries explores which national strategies have been implemented in the EMN Member Countries to enhance the prospects for displaced persons in non-EU first reception and transit countries, and how these strategies have been integrated within existing frameworks and agreements such as the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the EU’s New Pact on Migration and Asylum. It also attempts to provide examples of successful programmes and initiatives aiming to enhance the prospects of displaced people identifying good practices and exploring opportunities to further strengthen and foster (cross-border) partnerships and cooperation.
