Background/ IRC Summary
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 29 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. Economic well-being is one component of that work and one of five core outcome areas for the IRC's work. The IRC delivers labor market integration projects and support in small business start up and management.
The IRC has been responding to the refugee crisis in Europe since June 2015, initially on the Greek island of Lesvos and today across Greece and the Balkans, providing support to Middle East and North Africa refugees who have been stranded by recent border closures or who are at risk of exploitation from smugglers. Alongside the delivery of emergency response programs, IRC is starting to deploy technical resources to support European governments and civil society organizations in the longer-term process of integration for refugees. These efforts build on IRC's long experience working in the US on resettlement and integration.
Germany received more than 1.1 million asylum seekers since the start of 2015, and is now facing the challenge as it works to address the short and long-term needs of asylum seekers across the country. The IRC has identified opportunities to provide technical assistance through tools, training, technical expertise, and interaction with organisations in Germany. This is a new approach for the IRC and will draw on a strong foundation of expertise across the organization. IRC currently implements a range of Economic Recovery and Development programs internationally across 20 countries and provides employment and enterprise startup services in 29 resettlement offices across the United States. These program models, tools and resources will serve as the basis for developing new approaches across Europe. .
