# Scottish strategy for integrating refugees and asylum-seekers

In December 2013, the Scottish government published a strategy for the support and integration of refugees and asylum-seekers.

New Scots: Integrating Refugees in Scotland’s Communities 2014-2017 (PDF) was developed in partnership with a range of support agencies and aims to provide a framework for co-ordinating effort and maximising impact and resources.

The work of the strategy all takes place within the context of the public sector equality duty.
