What is EU-FRANK?

The EU-FRANK project, short for European Union action on Facilitating Resettlement and Refugee Admission through New Knowledge, aims at strengthening national administrations' capacity to provide international protection to refugees through resettlement.

Managed by Sweden (the Swedish Migration Agency), the EU-FRANK project is carried out in cooperation with partners in other EU Member States, as well as non-EU Member States and international non-governmental organisations. The aim is to support states, primarily those within the European Union, when they consider, plan, deliver or follow up on resettlement programs.

The project builds on the assumption that there is much to learn by exchanging experiences and working together with colleagues from other states. If there are good practices already out there - why not use them and adapt them to your national context?

The project started in January 2016 and will run until June 2020. It is funded by the European Union Asylum Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).
