Improving Labour Market Outcomes for Migrants in the European Union in the Context of EU2020 Agenda

Event: Improving Labour Market Outcomes for Migrants in the European Union in the Context of EU2020 Agenda
Date: 16-06-2010
Location: Management Centre Europe, Rue de l'Aqueduc 118, Brussels

International Organization for Migration (IOM) is pleased to announce a one-day EU‑level expert seminar on Improving Labour Market Outcomes for Migrants in the European Union in the Context of EU2020 Agenda to be held in Brussels on 16 June 2010.

The expert seminar is conducted in the framework of the EC-funded IOM Independent Network of Labour Migration and Integration Experts (LMIE‑INET) that investigates and assesses the socio‑economic impact of migration within the broader context of economic, employment and social policies at national and EU levels in order to provide the DG Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities of the European Commission with independent expert analysis and advice. The findings of the research carried out by LMIE-NET contribute to the knowledge basis for shaping the EU2020 Agenda and suggest pathways for further integration of migration issues into the common strategy for fostering the EU competitiveness.

The expert seminar will gather participants from 27 EU Member States, as well as Croatia, Norway and Turkey, including policy-makers, representatives of the EU institutions, international organizations, private business, trade unions, academia and civil society. The event will serve a two-fold purpose:

  1. To present preliminary findings of the comparative study on Migration, Employment and the Outcomes of Labour Market Integration Policies in the European Union conducted by IOM in January-May 2010. The study investigates the interrelations between migration and employment in national labour markets of the EU Member States, as well as Croatia, Norway and Turkey, examines labour market outcomes for migrants and explores some of the issues that the findings raise for migration, employment and social policies.
  2. To facilitate a debate with a broad range of stakeholders on policy measures, in particular in the field of employment and labour market relevant in the context of debate on implementation of EU2020 Agenda.

In particular, three thematic sessions will be held in order to discuss policies and practices aimed at improving labour market integration of migrants on the basis of concrete existing examples from across the LMIE-INET network countries.

Session I will be dedicated to the challenges of labour market integration of migrant youth in the framework of the proposed EU flagship initiative on New Skills and New Jobs.

Session II will investigate the good practices of national and local authorities in fostering labour market inclusion of migrant population.

Session III will serve as an opportunity to debate the examples of employers taking up an active role in labour market integration of migrants, including together with the state and regional bodies, as well as with the social partners.
