Since 2015, approximately 800,000 women have come to Europe as a result of the refugee crisis. Many of them cannot find employment in the receiving country. The main obstacles for women with a migrant or refugee background to enter the labour market are the lack of recognition of qualifications and previous work experience, lower language skills and gender inequality. EMIRE aims to empower women with migrant and/or refugee background, to help them integrate into the labour market and to foster their social inclusion. The objective is to develop concepts and tools for social workers, employment advisers and volunteers to support the empowerment process enabling women to become self-effective in their own integration process. We support a positive perception of women with migrant and/or refugee background in the labour market and we want to promote their social and professional integration.
