Labour Market Integration Promoting the Employment of Refugees in Europe

  • Brussels

The IOM Regional Office for the EEA, the EU and NATO and the IOM Coordination Office for the Mediterranean - Mission to Italy, Malta and the Holy See are pleased to invite you to our webinar on Tuesday 30th March 2021– 11:00 / 12:30 (CEST).

Getting a job is a crucial step for adults in becoming active members of society. This is no less true  for resettled refugees: their inclusion in the labour market is one of the keys to achieve their effective integration into hosting societies and develop a sense of belonging.

This webinar aims at fostering the exchange of knowledge, good practices and lessons learnt in the area of refugees’ labour market inclusion. It will also launch the Guidelines on labour market integration of resettled refugees in the European Union, developed within the COMMIT project. The Guidelines aim to provide guidance for all actors involved in the pre-departure and post-arrival phases of resettlement – namely PDO trainers, hosting institutions, social workers and community mentors – with practical information on the different issues and considerations involved in supporting resettled refugees to define and implement employment objectives and related job-seeking strategies.

The webinar will be moderated by Geertrui Lanneau, Senior Regional Labour Migration and Human Development Specialist, IOM RO Brussels.
