From skills to work

Refugees, as do other migrants, bring with them a wealth of experiences, skills and talents that make them very valuable to European labour markets.

The Skills2Work project has identified many good practices within nine European Member States.
This booklet presents a sample of the success stories collected within the framework of the Skills2Work project to highlight the mutually beneficial relationship between refugees and employers in European Member States. Each person featured here has a story to tell about achievements, but also about personal challenges, about adjusting expectations and about compassion. Yet all stories have something in common: they promote the talents
that refugees offer to our labour markets.
