Integration through Active Labor Market Policies
For disadvantaged immigrants it is pivotal that they master a successful professional (re-)insertion in order to successfully integrate in the host country. In fact, stable and suitable jobs – in terms of educational adequacy – allow immigrants to sustain their own livelihood and to simultaneously build a social network, which includes contacts to the native population. Such contacts are a prerequisite for a successful social integration. Thus, labor market participation besides being the foundation of social participation has also been shown to be essential in preventing welfare dependency and guaranteeing psychological and physical wellbeing.
