Recognition of Qualifications and Competences of Migrants

Recognition of Qualifications and Competences of Migrants

The IOM LINET study Recognition of Qualifications and Competences of Migrants (2013) investigates the existing national practices for assessing, validating and recognizing formal, non-formal and informal learning of migrants based on selected experiences within and outside the European Union (EU). The study reviews national practices against the complex requirements of modern labour markets and differing needs of various skill groups of migrants. While taking into account latest developments in skills assessment procedures, set-up of bilateral or multilateral recognition frameworks and introduction of pre-migration measures, it explores policy approaches to counteract brain waste of different groups of migrants resident in the EU Member States.

Improving Access to Labour Market Information for Migrants and Employers

Improving Access to Labour Market Information for Migrants and Employers

The IOM LINET study Improving Access to Labour Market Information for Migrants and Employers (2013) investigates information strategies and channels most commonly used for employment matching through migration, in selected EU Member States and non-EU settlement countries. The study identifies the main information-related obstacles facing respectively, employers willing to hire migrant workers – both from abroad and inside the country – and prospective and resident migrants looking for available job opportunities. It proposes appropriate policy responses, including at the pre-departure stage, to overcome those obstacles and enhance the potential of international migration to address labour and skill shortages.

Policy Highlights – Summary of the Research Findings of the IOM Independent Network of Labour Migration and Integration Experts (LINET)

In order to inform migration policy-making, both at European and national levels, the IOM Independent Network of Labour Migration and Integration Experts (LINET) has carried out nine studies in the EU Member States and beyond.

 

In its annual reports on employment and migration policy, Migration, Employment and Labour Market Integration Policies in the European Union 2000-2009, 2010 and 2011 LINET has been monitoring latest developments and trends as well as policy responses to migration by third-country nationals and their labour market integration in the EU Member States, Croatia, Norway and Turkey. The studies Migration and the Economic Crisis in the European Union: Implications for Policy (2010), Labour Shortages and Migration Policies (2012), Labour Market Inclusion of the Less Skilled Migrants in the European Union (2012), Recognition of Qualifications and Competences of Migrants (2013) and Improving Access to Labour Market Information for Migrants and Employers (2013) discussed specific areas of relevance and for specific policy intervention.
