On 14 December the final conference of the Labour Market Integration of Migrants (Labour-INT) project took place. Labour-INT, which was launched in the wake of the 2016 Joint Statement of the European Economic and Social Partners, promoted the inclusion of asylum-seekers and refugees in the labour market, focusing on the interest and capacities of businesses, chambers of industry and commerce, trade unions and migrant associations. Based on a multi-stakeholder approach, the project promoted multi-layered integration paths, from arrival to the workplace, passing through education, training and job placement.
The conference aimed to share the results of the two-year project, through which CEEP, ETUC, EUROCHAMBRES, DIESIS and several national, European and international organisations have been advocating a multi-stakeholder approach in setting up inclusive integration paths for migrants in the European labour market.
The event also provided the participants with an overview of the current European migration context and of migrants’ labour market integration, including the presentation of the various national pilot actions that were deployed throughout the implementation of the project.
