Skills and migration unpacked: perspectives from the EU neighbourhood
Every year tens of thousands of people move from countries beyond the European Union’s boundaries to live, study and work in the community. Whether they move to another country, come back to the country of origin or simply transit through territories one thing is key: making sure their skills are valued, and that they are provided with the new skills that they would eventually need.
Legal migration, the recognition of qualifications, the validation of skills and competencies and prior learning: these are some of the aspects on which the ETF has been working since 2007, putting at the core the skills dimension of migration and addressing the root causes of migration by improving policies for skills development mechanisms.
To explore further these aspects, the ETF has analysed in depth the skills dimension of migration focusing on specific countries: Georgia, Jordan, Lebanon, Moldova, Morocco, Tunisia and Ukraine. The recently published studies present data, trends and challenges relating to the skills dimension of migration to provide an updated and structured state of play. Moreover, they focus on policy developments and practical experiences to reinforce migrants’ skills. Also, they provide recommendations for areas of intervention in the short to medium term.
