Evaluation of the COA arrangement

Evaluation of the COA arrangement

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

In this study, the authors examined the possible added value and results of the COA arrangement that enables so called ‘status holders’(refugees with a residence permit) to temporarily stay with their family, friends or a host family. The COA arrangement is aimed at bettering the participation of refugees. The authors researched the arrangement as facilitated by Takecarebnb (TCBnB), a voluntary initiative that matches refugees and host families. They compared status holders who stayed with a TCBnB host family with status holders that stayed with friends or family (without the interference of an intermediary organisation) and status holders who did not make use of the arrangement but, instead, remained in an Asylum Seeker’ Centre until they were given permanent accommodations. In addition, they researched the conditions under which the added value of the arrangement could be ensured.
