Migrants and refugees

A priority mission for the CEB

Assisting migrants, refugees and displaced persons is at the core of CEB’s mandate. The Bank was set up in the aftermath of the Second World War to help resettle refugees and internally displaced persons. Since then, it has gradually widened its scope of action, in sectoral and geographical terms, to meet the financing needs of its member states. However, providing aid to displaced persons remains a priority mission for the Bank. Accordingly, the CEB allocates the largest part of its grants in favour of this population.
