Integration of refugees

The introduction of this research report sets out the relevant theoretical foundation. The first part characterizes the asylum procedure in the Czech Republic, covering social situation of asylum applicants, involvement of governmental and non-governmental organizations in the asylum procedure as well as statistical data. The integration process is perceived in connection to issues such as housing and social emancipation of recognized refugees in their dealings with government institutions. The report describes state-funded integration programs in the area of housing and language training for recognized refugees. Isolation of refugees and building of their autonomous social network are the subject of an analysis of integration conditions where a major role is played by the social environment in which refugees live and their education under the state-funded integration program.
The research of refugees’ integration has taken into account the government‘s resolution “Principles of integration of foreigners on the territory of the Czech Republic and steps toward their implementation.” The report ends with a set of recommendations.
