The MPC launches a study on labour market integration support measures for refugees and asylum-seekers in Europe

The MPC, in cooperation with the Bertelsmann Stiftung of Germany, is carrying out a quick study aiming to map labour market integration support measures for recent refugees and asylum-seekers (REFMISMES) in nine EU Member States. The overall objective of the Study is to identify the policies and practices being implemented in different EU Member States in this field and to analyze them with a comparative perspective, identifying and discussing good practices and lessons learned in the different countries, as well as contextual factors affecting the effectiveness of different measures. The study will be completed by early March 2016. A description of the REFMISMES Study can be found here.

A first workshop to set out the methodology for the nine country case studies will be organized at the MPC in Florence on the 16 December (see Programme here)
