Integrating young refugees in the EU - Country information
The EU Fundamental Rights Agency’s report ‘Integration of young refugees in the EU’ explores the challenges of young people who fled armed conflict or persecution and arrived in the EU in 2015 and 2016. The report is based on 426 interviews with experts working in the area of asylum and integration, as well as 163 interviews with young people, aged 16 to 24, in 15 regions and cities located in six Member States: Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Italy and Sweden. The links on this page provide a summary of the information collected for each country about unaccompanied children turning 18 and the change in people’s legal status once international protection is granted. These two issues have been identified as moments requiring sufficient, consistent and systematic support, particularly from lawyers, social workers and guardians, to ensure successful integration.
