Integrated actions to support labour market integration of asylum seekers

FINAL EVENT

 

 

The event

FORWORK aimed at developing, implementing, and evaluating innovative paths to effective integration of asylum seekers and refugees in the labour market. The beneficiaries, hosted in reception centres in Piedmont (Italy) and Albania, were offered mentoring, language courses, vocational training, and support in identifying their skills and looking for a job. In Italy, the FORWORK project specifically targeted asylum seekers hosted in extraordinary reception centres (CAS), who are legally entitled to work but have very limited access to services aimed at labour market integration. The implementation of the project, with 8 partner institutions and 4 associate organizations, took place between January 2018 and September 2021. With the end of the activities, it is time to present the results of the project, evaluate its impact, and discuss what the policy lessons for the labour market and social integration of asylum seekers are.
