Brussels, 13 July 2016
The European Commission is proposing today an EU Resettlement Framework to establish a common European policy on resettlement to ensure orderly and safe pathways to Europe for persons in need of international protection. The proposal is part of the Commission's reform of the Common European Asylum System and the long-term policy on better migration management set out by the European Agenda on Migration. It will also contribute to the implementation of the new results-oriented Partnership Framework for cooperation with key third countries of origin and transit presented by the Commission on 7 June.
