The needs analysis is about the perception and knowledge of participants (experts and refugees) regarding the current situation of refugees at national levels in Turkey, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Spain, Italy and Greece. The objective of the needs analysis is to develop an evidence-based argument for social inclusion of refugees in host countries.

The situation analysis, on the other hand, is about assessing the complex situation of refugees within its wider context, systematically gathering information, identifying the main problems and needs within a refugee population, identifying the principal resources contained within that population, and analysing the information gathered in order to facilitate the process of planning in a systematic, strategic, integrated and co-ordinated manner.

This analysis report provides an overall picture for understanding the present situation of refugees in the host countries in terms of citizenship, education, accommodation, health, employment and social cohesion.
