In 2009, France set up two programmes for receiving vulnerable populations: one for people from vulnerable minorities in Iraq and the other for the beneficiaries of international protection obtained in Malta. These two operations are in addition to the refugee resettlement programme conducted with the HCR in application of a framework agreement signed with France in February 2008. These populations, each with a different legal status, signed the Reception and Integration Contract in France following a long and complex migration procedure. Following an initial period in France, they are experiencing problems with integration. In spite of this, they remain confident about the future and all wish to settle permanently in France.
