THE LEGAL HELP WE OFFER TO REFUGEES

Two institutions: NARICS and DG migrations and home affairs

On a legal level, two institutions are providing help to refugees. On one hand, the NARIC agency network deals with matters related to recognition of international qualifications whereas on the other hand, the Directorate-General (DG) Migrations and Home Affairs prepares EU-level rules in these policy areas and on the other funds related projects in EU States.

NARIC is a designated network for the recognition and comparison of international qualifications and skills. In every European Union Member State you’ll find a NARIC agency to help get official documents stating how your international qualifications compare to the national law or proofing your language abilities.

NARIC WEBSITE

The aim of DG Home – Migration and home affairs is to ensure that people may undertake all activities (cultural, social and economic) that further the EU's growth in a stable, lawful and secure environment . Its work is guided by multi-annual work programmes, the current Stockholm Programme covering the period 2010-14.
