Information package on refugee reception for municipalities

The Integration section of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment’s website (tem.fi) features an information package on the reception of refugees, their placement in municipalities and integration, which includes infographics on the topic.

The package includes information on the organisation of reception and integration services, central government reimbursements and cooperation opportunities. It also gives space to municipalities’ experiences. In particular, it is targeted at municipalities and others interested in these topics. Professionals of integration and the reception of refugees can also use this material in their work.

The information package was produced by the Centre of Expertise in Immigrant Integration at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment in cooperation with the Sylvia2 project. The infographics and layout were designed by Hill+Knowlton.

Using the material in your work

The information package is a handy tool supporting the municipality in planning the reception of refugees. It also supports professionals working with integration and the reception of refugees. The package contains basic information about receiving refugees, key concepts, information about the placement of refugees in municipalities and the services provided by the municipality, as well as recent experiences of municipalities. The material also contains links to additional information about the topics.

You can browse the material on the Integration pages of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment’s website (tem.fi), or print out the entire information package in pdf format.

In connection with the publication of this package, the section on receiving refugees on Kotouttaminen.fi was updated with the infographics and texts of the package. The section provides more extensive information than the concise package on the reception and integration of refugees.
