‘From Refugees to Workers’: New study on labour market integration of refugees


Integrating the more than one million refugees who have come to Europe since 2015 is a key challenge for the future of the continent. Labour market integration is crucial in making that integration succeed and in turning the refugee crisis into an economic boost for Europe. Now, what are EU Member States doing to facilitate that process? The Bertelsmann Stiftung has just published a study carried out by the Migration Policy Centre at the Schuman Centre of the European University Institute. The study looks at refugee labour-market integration support measures (REFMISMES) throughout the European Union.

MPC facilitates a regional training workshop on migration for EU Delegations in East Africa

External Thematic Expertise on Migration

On 26-28 September, MPC Part-time Professor Iván Martín co-facilitated a regional training workshop in Nairobi, Kenya, in the framework of the project ‘External Thematic Expertise on Migration’ (ETEM). The workshop dealt with EU external cooperation in the field of migration and asylum and the implementation of the European Union Emergency Trust Fund for Africa. It was addressed to officers of EU Delegations in East Africa and of the European Commission Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection.

The ETEM project is implemented by a consortium integrated by the Migration Policy Centre and led by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).


The Migration Policy Centre based at the European University Institute, Florence, conducts advanced research on global migration to serve migration governance needs at the European level, from developing, implementing and monitoring migration-related policies to assessing their impact on the wider economy and society.
