DIKTIO's New Research
DIKTIO participates on the Advisory Board of a large-scale H2020 research project SIRIUS: Skills and Integration of Migrants Refugees and Asylum Applicants in European Labour Markets
SIRIUS is a 2.2 million project run by a Europe-wide consortium of universities and civil society organizations from Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Italy, Switzerland, and United Kingdom.
Led by the Glasgow Caledonian University the project aims to explore how access to work could support migrant integration across Europe. It has three main objectives:
- To provide systematic evidence on post-2014 migrants, refugees and asylum applicants especially women and young people and their potential for labour market employment and, more broadly, social integration.
- To advance knowledge on the complexity of labour market integration for post-2014 migrants, refugees and asylum applicants, and to explore their integration potential by looking into their spatial distribution (in relation to the distribution of labour demand across the labour market), while taking into account labour market characteristics and needs in different country and socio-economic contexts.
- To advance a theoretical framework for an inclusive integration agenda, outlining an optimal mix of policy pathways for labour market integration including concrete steps that Member States and other European countries along with the EU can take to ensure that migrant-integration policies and the broader system of workforce-development, training, and employment programmes support new arrivals’ access to decent work opportunities and working conditions.
SIRIUS has a mixed methods approach and innovative dissemination plan involving online priority action networks, film essays, festival, job fair and an applied game along with scientific and policy dialogue workshops and conferences.
