Information session for representatives of municipalities working with resettled refugees

On February 28, the Bulgarian Council on Refugees and Migrants participated in an Information Session for representatives of municipalities working with resettled refugees, organized by the Refugee Migrant Service of the Bulgarian Red Cross. During the meeting, key activities focused on the integration of refugees were presented, as well as basic information on the legal framework related to their rights and obligations. In addition,  the cultural and social specificities of the Middle East communities were presented. The event provided an opportunity to present the experience of a municipal district that has successfully integrated refugees, as well as the history of a successfully integrated refugee in Bulgaria. The session is organized within the implementation of the ARCI project – Action of Red Cross for Integration of Relocated and Resettled Persons, funded under the EU Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund.
