Access to work for refugees and asylum seekers

Part of the solution to the refugee situation in Europe is to swiftly integrate those who have arrived into host countries’ labour markets. Refugees and asylum seekers, however, face many obstacles to getting work, including lengthy asylum procedures, poor conditions in reception centres and lack of adequate support. Eurofound is holding a national-level seminar entitled ‘EU labour market integration of asylum seekers and refugees: Challenges and opportunities’ to raise awareness of its work in this area in Berlin on 28–29 November. These national-level seminars are organised to reach out to the key tripartite stakeholders in various Member States on themes relevant to clusters of countries – on this occasion, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
