Asylum Policies and the Labour Market Integration of Refugees across Europe

Dr. Tommaso Frattini, University of Milan

We study the labour market integration of refugees across European countries. In particular, we analyse the role of different refugee policies, as well as of economic conditions in receiving countries at the time of arrival, on refugees’ subsequent assimilation trajectories. We use newly available data from two waves of the European Labour Force Survey, which enable us to identify refugee migrants and study their labour market integration vis-à-vis that of economic migrants.
