Presentazione del corso

The process of return and labour market reintegration is a dynamic and complex one. The presence of labour market opportunities, infrastructure, enabling policies, possibilities for investment of savings, access to financial and non-financial services (including loans), owning property, registering a company, appropriate education and health services for migrants, former refugees, and their families, all appear to be vital for the process of reintegration. This requires a solid policy and incentive packages in order to make return and labour market reintegration a viable solution. The course will review the main concepts and definitions of labour market reintegration and links them to the different phases of the labour migration policy cycle, such as design, implementation, measures fostering labour market reintegration for return migrants and refugees, and monitoring and evaluation.
