The historic Global Refugee Forum in Geneva provides an opportunity for States, NGOs and other stakeholders to exchange and showcase their good practices and experiences in refugee response – be it on a national, regional or global level. These good practices illustrate how comprehensive approaches are already working and transforming the lives of refugees and host communities in many parts of the world, and they can thus inspire to develop more innovative and impactful contributions.

Find here an overview of good practices coming from the Northern Europe region – this page will continuously be updated as more good practices are shared.
