Better Housing for Refugees Means Better Housing For All

Improving living standards for refugees helps normalize the refugee settlement experience for everyone, turning strangers into neighbours.

The Refugee Portal connects you to promising practices on the reception, settlement and inclusion of refugees and asylum seekers in cities around the world.

From housing, language learning and healthcare to employment, education and recreation, many good practices come from well-established programs and agencies with long experience in humanitarian assistance. Tried and true, they are ready to scale.

Others reflect more informal responses to refugee integration. Community-based, often citizen-led, these ‘works in progress’ are providing local solutions and driving innovation by bringing new actors and ideas to the table.

Together, these good ideas in refugee integration are helping us build open, resilient and inclusive urban communities where all can thrive and prosper.

The Refugee Portal is a project of Integration For All, a transatlantic exchange of ideas between Cities of Migration,  Bertelsmann Stiftung (Germany), Hire Immigrants (Canada) and Welcoming America (USA).
