FRA report on integrating young refugees in the EU

European Union Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) disseminated its report on young refugees integration in the European Union in 2019.

The document comments on the results of interviews with experts, working in the field of asylum and integration, as well as with young (aged 16-24) individuals who in 2015-2016 were granted asylum in one of total six EU countries (Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, or Sweden) analyzed.

Among common challenges and good practices related to integrating young refugees, the report emphasizes on two particular thematic areas which acutely help to identify (un)successful integration:

  1. Unaccompanied minors turning into adult (older than 18 years old) people.
  2. Legal status’ changes after a person has been granted international protection.
