EU Highlights

New evidence on integration of refugee women in EU

Women make up around 45% of refugees in Europe—and their share is growing—but relatively little is known about their specific needs and integration outcomes. Understanding the challenges of refugee women is all the more important because this group faces a 'triple disadvantage', encountering difficulties that arise from being female, non-native and having a refugee background. In this context, a recent study by the OECD fills in some of the knowledge gap with new comparative data from selected EU and non-EU countries. The study is available in German and English.
