Two institutions: NARICS and DG migrations and home affairs

On a legal level, two institutions are providing help to refugees. On one hand, the NARIC agency network deals with matters related to recognition of international qualifications whereas on the other hand, the Directorate-General (DG) Migrations and Home Affairs prepares EU-level rules in these policy areas and on the other funds related projects in EU States.
