Do the European Integration Fund and European Refugee Fund contribute effectively to the integration of third-country nationals?
Special Report No 22, 2012
This report assesses whether the European Integration Fund and European Refugee Fund contribute effectively to the integration of third-country nationals in the EU. It found that while positive results could be observed at the level of individual audited projects, inadequate systems had been set up to measure the success of the funds. The programme design hampered effectiveness and there was inadequate coordination with other EU funds. The Court recommends, inter alia, simplification of programming arrangements and a comprehensive assessment of integration needs regardless of whether migrants... have EU or third-country nationality. Based on this assessment, an appropriate fund(s) structure should be designed.
