Moving to a new country is always challenging, but can be particularly so when you have a difficult past.
The Finnish Refugee Council supports refugees and migrants in finding their place in the Finnish society as its equal members. We acknowledge that integration is a two-way process requiring flexibility and adaptability on both the migrants’ and the receiving society’s behalf.
As migration increases, two-way integration becomes a crucial part of a functional and stable societies. Our vision of refugees and migrants as equal, participating and engaged members of their society is present in all our activities, both domestically and internationally.
In Finland, the FRC’s operations focus on developing structural solutions to facilitate effective integration, and supporting migrants and refugees’ active social engagement.
