The International Organization for Migration is launching a project to prepare Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey for resettlement in Europe. The Link It project hopes to overcome problems faced by migrants in integrating successfully in host countries.

A group of 500 Syrian refugees in the MENA region - Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey - will take part in the first stage of the project. The aim is to prepare them for social and economic adjustment to their new lives in Europe. The refugees will eventually be resettled in four EU states: Germany, Portugal, Romania, and the United Kingdom. Read More.
