Labour Market Integration of Migrants. A Multi-stakeholder Approach (2019-2020)

The LABOUR-INT 2 project (2019 –2021, phase 1) aimed at further meeting the objectives of the previous two-years project LABOUR-INT (2016-2018, phase 1) to identify common solutions to tackle the key challenges faced by migrants in integrating the labour market, with a specific focus on skills and qualifications by a multi-stakeholder approach.  

The LABOUR-INT 2 project: 

  • promoted employment as a key part of the integration process of asylum seekers and refugees in society. 
  • supported multi-layered and multi-stakeholder integration paths for recently arrived migrants across the EU, from arrival up to the workplace, through skills assessment and profiling training and job placement. 
  • Enhanced the “LABOUR-INT approach”, based on the cooperation, dialogue and commitment of economic and social partners as key labour market actors, and to build or foster a fruitful collaboration with other relevant stakeholders both in the public, private and not-for-profit sector. 

In line with the previous action LABOUR-INT (phase 1) the action included the follow up of the three national pilot actions (in Austria, Greece, Italy) that were initiated in the first edition of LABOUR-INT and aimed at developing further pilot actions that presented a favourable environment for multi-layered integration programmes.
