Abstract

The report Feasibility study on the potential of communitybased sponsorship in Finland examines the development of communitysponsored integration in cooperation with the State, municipalities, organisations and civil society. The aim was to obtain information on how a community sponsorship model of integration would fit into the refugee resettlement programme in Finland. A possible programme was positively received. In particular, the respondents hoped that the national programme would make it easier for refugees to settle in early, find social networks and plan their future realistically. The programme could create permanent cooperation structures between authorities and civil society instead of cooperation based on individual projects.The report has been produced in co-operation between the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and the Ministry of the Interior.
