Cedefop’s project on Adult refugee legal mobility seeks to conceptualize and pilot a skills-based complementary pathway that allows lawful and safe pathways to protection of adult refugees by drawing on their human capital potential and labour market needs.

The central element of such a pathway is the matching of skills and qualifications of refugees and the labour market needs in a potential destination country. The matching shall allow refugees to move from a country of asylum to a new destination country in view of employment.

Aims of the workshop:

  • present the project, and, in particular, to discuss with the representatives of the participating organizations the rationale and the concept of a skills-based complementary pathway for lawful and safe pathways to protection of adult refugees based on matching their skills with labour market needs and answer to the questions of the participants;
  • investigate possible interest of the participating organisations in such a pathway to refugees’ protection and in being actively involved in developing a country specific solution based on the general concept/theoretical framework.
