Question

To ask the Scottish Government what progress has been made on establishing a Scottish City of Refuge.

Current status: Answered by Shona Robison on 13 July 2022


Answer

Work to develop the establishment of Scottish Cities of Refuge will start later in this Parliamentary term.

The development of Cities of Refuge will align with the approach of our New Scots refugee integration strategy, which sets out the vision of a welcoming Scotland, where people seeking protection are supported to rebuild their lives from the day they arrive.
