What is it about?

The article is about labour market integration of refugees with a distinct focus on the role, attitudes and motivations of employers. Some employers have refugee employees because they feel a responsibility to be socially inclusive, whereas other employers are more driven by their self interest. Likewise, some employers refrain from employing refugees because they do not believe they have a social responsibility to do or, or because it does not coincide with their self-interest. Six different types of employers are analysed in the article.

Why is it important?

Labour market integration is important from a societal point of view (it benefits integration and social cohesion). Strong labour market integration of refugees will reduce public spending and increase tax payments.


Employers are crucial in relation to labour market integration of refugees - but often neglected in existing research.
