Under the European Union (EU) Relocation Scheme in 2015, the EU member states were obliged to relocate refugees from Italy and Greece.

Supplementary notes

* The figures for the EU relocation scheme, adopted by the Council of the EU, were obtained from the European Commission factsheet. In total, under the scheme, it was planned to relocate first 120,000 and later 160,000 refugees into EU member states as well as non-EU states Liechtenstein, Switzerland, and Norway.
The figures did not include 54,000 Syrian refugees who were to be relocated from Turkey under the EU-Turkey agreement and nearly 8,000 refugees who were still to be relocated from Greece and Italy under the Council decision 2015/1601.
