Policy Innovation in Refugee Integration
For the Dutch Department of Social Affairs, I just completed a report with a comparative analysis of innovative policies in refugee integration in 10 European countries. The report signals several trends in innovation (labour market integration first, lack of attention to health and social-cultural interaction), and observes that although most countries adopt a mainstreamed approach, especially those countries with relatively high numbers of refugees choose to complement a mainstreamed approach with more ad-hoc and specific measures. The report was developed with students from the MSc. Programme Governance of Migration and Diversity. Click here to read the report.
