How many people have been relocated under the EU relocation scheme?

Brussels – In order to address an unprecedented arrival of migrants on the European Union’s southern borders, in particular in Greece and Italy in 2015, a so-called emergency relocation mechanism entered into force in September 2015.
The measure applies to those migrants who are in need of international protection – mainly Syrians, Eritreans and Iraqis – with a recognition rate of international protection at EU level above 75 per cent.
It forces all member states except the United Kingdom, Denmark and the host countries – Italy and Greece – to accept a certain number of migrants and applies until September 17, 2017.
However, the measure has been controversial and divided member states, and the number of people relocated remains well below target.
Here is a rundown of which member states have accepted how many people under the scheme as of September 1, 2017, based on figures published by the European Commission.
