Take a leading role in the integration of refugees in EU-funded project

 

Is your company or organisation working to integrate refugees and migrants into the labour market? 


CSR Europe is looking for corporate members to form a European Business Coalition to work on integration of refugees into the labour market.

The European Union has recently launched an initiative to mobilise employers for the integration of migrants in the labour market. This autumn, the European Commission’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) will be launching a call for proposals. 


In this context, CSR Europe wants to form a European Business Coalition that will roll out a project, in collaboration with the IOM – The UN Migration Agency and other partners at the local level, to mobilise and support businesses in integrating refugees into the labour market.

 

Refugees arriving on the job market can yield substantial economic benefits. They offer different and complementary skills that can fill gaps in the labour market and enhance local productivity.

The EU is interested in collaborating with companies active within CSR Europe to scale up the impact of such partnerships.

Interested in becoming a partner? Please contact Paula Byrne (pb@csreurope.org).
