GCU to host conference on labour-market integration of migrants

Researchers exploring migrants, refugees and asylum seekers’ integration into labour markets will head to Glasgow Caledonian University in August for the SIRIUS project’s first academic conference.

Sessions across the two days will be structured around six themes, including the role of the third sector in promoting the integration of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in European societies and labour markets, biographies of labour-market integration, and labour-market integration policies for migrants.

The Yunus Centre is the coordinator of the EU H2020-funded SIRIUS project, which aims to advance the integration of migrants and refugees in European labour markets. The project involves universities and organisations in Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Italy, Switzerland and the UK.

Keynote speakers will include: Professor Christina Boswell from the University of Edinburgh, Professor Barbara Oomen from Utrecht University, GCU’s Dr Ima Jackson and Dr Amparo Gonzalez-Ferrer from the Spanish National Research Council and the Spanish Government.

The free conference will take place on campus on August 29 and 30. All staff and students are welcome to attend and registration is now open on Eventbrite.
