Integration of refugees

Feasibility study on evaluating measures for the labor market integration of refugees (in German language)

Client: Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Berlin

Project partners: -

Duration: 01.10.2016 - 31.12.2016

The project clarifies the feasibility of an accompanying evaluation of labor market policy measures that are aimed at integrating refugees under the responsibility of the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, including vocational German language training. It aims at developing scientifically valid proposals for a substantial conceptualization, targeted methodological approaches and a common-sense organizational implementation of an evaluation concept. For that purpose current and relevant literature will be reviewed and appropriate benchmarks for evaluating integration progress will be developed. The project will examine, which methods are best suited to disclose both the effects and interactions of the integration measures. In addition, data availability and data requirements will be determined.
