Starting Over? Filling information gaps relating to refugees and asylum seekers in emergency shelters and community housing in Berlin.

Refugee Rights Europe


Abstract: Starting Over? outlines the issues faced by refugees and asylum seekers living in emergency shelters and community housing centres in Berlin. The report finds that Germany’s approach to welcoming and integrating refugees has been relatively successful compared to many other European countries. However, there remain a number of problem areas which must be urgently addressed. Refugee Rights Europe’s 12 academic researchers conducted 390 surveys in German, English, Russian, Arabic, Dari and Tigrinya, across a total of eight emergency shelters and community housing centres. The study was undertaken in Berlin from 17-21 December 2016 and 4-6 January 2017.
