Beratung und Vermittlung von Flüchtlingen



"Labour market integration of refugees contributes to their integration into society and constitutes a particular challenge of public employment services. Many refugees are highly motivated to get a job. However, they often do not or hardly speak German and do not have any vocational qualification acknowledged in Germany. Furthermore, refugees find work by means of social contact with relatives, friends or acquaintances without involving the public employment service. Given the challenge of public employment services to integrate refugees into the labour market, this study seeks to answer the research question: How do employment agencies influence the labour market integration of refugees? The study takes up the findings of an evaluation of the pilot scheme 'Early Intervention - Early Labour Market Integration of Asylum Seekers'. In five employment agency districts, qualitative case studies have been conducted in order to examine the process of labour market advice and job placement of refugees. The study describes how employment agencies create internal structures and enter into external co-operation in order to integrate refugees into the labour market. Furthermore, it identifies different ways into the labour market. It is shown that face-to-face contact between refugees and employers is essential to take up a job or a training place. However, it is also shown that many activities of the employment agencies occur prior to the matching between jobseekers and job vacancies. In particular, this applies to language courses, competence assessment as well as vocational guidance and counselling orientation." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
