Western countries have long struggled to achieve a successful social and economic integration of immigrants. This challenge has further increased against the backdrop of recent immigration trends. In this context, labor market integration is a pivotal stepping-stone that grants opportunities for immigrants and their families allowing them to take part in the social and economic life of their host country. Flavia's presentation will provide an overview over which policies are most promising in enabling immigrants’ labor market access, based on her research at, inter alia, the Swiss Graduate School of Public Administration (IDHEAP) in Lausanne.
