Discussion Workshop on the General Inventory of Migrant Support Measures from an Employment and Skills Perspective (MISMES)

 

Description

On 13 and 14 March 2014 at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence, the MISMES project is organising a workshop that will bring together the EUI and the European Training Foundation (ETF) project teams (a total of around 20 experts). Its aim will be to discuss the first draft of the General Inventory and its main conclusions on different categories of Migrant Support Measures from an Employment and Skills Perspective (MISMES), including the contextual factors affecting them. Policy implications for the Mobility Partnerships with EU neighbouring countries will be discussed, as well as the approach and methodology for the five MISMES country case studies to be carried out in the second phase of the study.

The General Inventory will identify more than twenty standard models of MISMES – from pre-departure training to migrant resource centers or skills transfers through temporary stay of qualified nationals – and analyze them with a comparative perspective, aiming to identify success factors and provide elements for assessing their cost-effectiveness and their impact on migrant workers’ labour market integration and skills utilization or enhancement.
