What Labour-INT is:

Labour-INT promotes inclusion of asylum-seekers and refugees in the labour market. Building on the interest and capacities of businesses, chambers of industry and commerce, trade unions and migrant associations, Labuor-INT promotes multi-layered integration paths, from arrival up to the workplace, passing through education, training and job placement.

What Labour INT does:

Labour-INT establishes a closer cooperation between public and private businesses, chambers of commerce and industries, trade unions and migrants’ associations by exchanging objectives, methods and practices of labour market integration of refugees and asylum-seekers.
The action includes national pilot actions which bring benefits in the short and medium term to third-country nationals, as they are directly involved or because they are the first beneficiaries of increased capacity of public and private businesses to provide assistance for integration of asylum-seekers and refugees. Labour INT partners work together to set a playing field for successful national pilot actions.

What Labour INT wants:

Partners of this project have already identified current and upcoming practices that mobilise social partners at local level. Building on them, the project attaints three main results:

1. Building value for asylum-seekers and refugees adapting labour market instruments to the specific situation of asylum-seekers and refugees in a context of equal treatment with domestic workers.

2. Building value for businesses, trade unions, authorities and labour market institutions promoting multi-stakeholder operational frameworks.

Whom Labour-INT is for?

Direct and main beneficiaries are asylum-seekers and refugees as they directly benefit from the action and from the improved capacity of businesses, trade unions and migrants’ associations to assist them for a faster transition into the labour market and in the workplace.
