This is the first report of its kind in Europe. 

The report compares the responses of eight European countries – Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, the UK, Germany, Austria, and Poland – to the high influxes of protection seekers in 2015-2016 and in 2022-2023. It includes updated analysis of policy responses up until June 2023.  

NIBR has conducted the comparative report – along with eight country-specific reports – together with UCL (University College London), University of Eastern Finland, Centre of Migration Research University of Warsaw, German Centre for integration and Migration Research (DeZIM) and University of Vienna. The report has been financed by IMDi – The Directorate of Integration and Diversity.
