Publication alert: Approaches to the labour market integration of refugees and asylum seekers

Eurofound’s new report takes forward existing research on the labour market integration of refugees (those with the officially recognised status of international protection) and asylum seekers (those who have applied for international protection and are awaiting a decision). The report provides updated information on legislation and practical arrangements in the first half of 2016, examines labour market integration in the context of receiving and supporting asylum seekers and refugees, and explores the role of the social partners in this area.

The report presents a number of key findings, such as the impediments that overcrowding and poor conditions can have in terms of labour market access, as well as specific barriers that asylum seekers can face. It also contains a number of policy pointers aimed at providing labour market opportunities for refugees and asylum seekers, as well as further recognising the importance of social partners in the area.
