Decisions on the nationwide management of the refugee flow

Today, Prime Minister Victor Ponta, accompanied by several ministers, representatives of state institutions and local authorities had a meeting with representatives of civil society on one of the topics of interest for public opinion in Romania: nationwide management of the refugee flow that Europe is confronted with.

The meeting aimed at establishing a framework of cooperation between state authorities and non-governmental organizations working in the area of ​​reception, support and integration of refugees. Prime Minister outlined that the Romanian society and the state are facing for the first time a challenge of this kind and, as they lack institutional experience in this regard, it is natural to initiate a dialogue of the central and local authorities with the NGOs. Civil society representatives with experience in the field have reported the main shortcomings of the refugees’ integration process, and have advanced concrete proposals to overcome them. One of the conclusions of the meeting is that we do not deal with a crisis, but with an opportunity to create a functional system for the integration of refugees, both on short term and for the future.

At the proposal of Prime Minister Victor Ponta, there were adopted several decisions with practical effect. It was decided to institutionalize dialogue on refugees under the form of a series of monthly meetings as part of a "National Coalition for the integration of refugees", which aims at improving the institutional and legislative framework in the field. The coalition will put together state authorities and NGOs interested and willing to participate in efforts to integrate refugees. It was decided to create a secretariat of the Coalition and there were appointed officials in charge of the major directions of activity: primary logistics, healthcare, education, legislative adjustment, medium and long term integration, public information.

The first meeting of the "Coalition for refugee integration" with a well-defined agenda, will be held in the last week of October.
