Repository of promising practices

This is a repository of promising practices of labour market integration and social inclusion of asylum seekers and refugees across EU Member States.

While there is agreement that early access to the labour market as well as to enabling services is key for the labour market and social integration of asylum seekers and refugees, considerable differences exist between Member States in terms of the policies and actions pursued.

The aim of this database is therefore to enhance mutual learning and transferability between EU Member States of the most effective policies in the area of social and labour market integration of refugees and asylum-seekers, as well as skills.

In addition, as part of the New Skills Agenda for Europe, the European Commission proposed a "Skills Profile Tool" to support a better use of third country nationals’ skills and their labour market integration.

We have gathered the information presented here as a living tool, therefore we will update it in the weeks and months to come. If you would like to help us update this database, please fill in this template with your promising practice, and send it to us.
