Prof Michelle Pace successfully organised and participated as a speaker at the conference “Migrants, Refugees and Asylum Seekers in the Danish Labour Market: Challenges and Opportunities”​

Prof Michelle Pace successfully organised and participated as a speaker in a two-day conference on “Migrants, Refugees and Asylum Seekers in the Danish Labour Market: Challenges and Opportunities”​, October 5-6, 2020.

More on the research project:

What opportunities and challenges are associated with the integration of refugees, migrants and asylum seekers into the Danish labour market? This is the question examined by the Danish team of researchers in the SIRIUS project (Skills and Integration of Migrants, Refugees and Asylum Applicants in European Labour Markets) over the past three years.

There has been a political focus in Denmark in recent years on getting foreigners into the labour market as quickly as possible, and although there may be differences in their statuses/circumstances (for example, refugees and migrants), some of the foreigners interviewed for the project have experienced some of the same barriers preventing their smooth integration into the Danish labour market. These barriers include language, cultural codes and norms and a lack of a network, which can otherwise often be a good route into the Danish labour market. In addition, some of the interviewees experience that they do not get a job corresponding to their qualifications, and that this is due to the fact that they encounter a system that is not necessarily geared to take account of the individual foreigner.

Professor of Global Studies at Roskilde University, Michelle Pace, who is the leader of the Danish team of researchers, concludes – on the basis of the research project – that the current focus on getting foreigners into the labour market at quickly as possible causes problems:

“The potential benefits of good labour market-oriented efforts are great, but right now we can see that a number of foreigners do not really have the opportunity to contribute with the qualifications they have. Our research shows that it would be beneficial to work on developing a system that better assesses the skills that foreigners bring with them to Denmark, so that we can ensure that they can take up jobs that reflect their skills and experiences” explains Professor Michelle Pace.

About the Webinar:

How will the Trump plan for solving the Israeli – Palestinian conflict and the recent normalization between UAE and Bahrain and Israel impact the future situation for the Palestinians?

“The vision to improve the lives of the Israeli and Palestinian people out in the new US plan Peace to Prosperity published January this year is untenable. A vision developed without the participation of the Palestinian and with an American reframing of basic principle for a peaceful solution set out by the international society. While no one can deny that the UN resolutions have produced no progress on the ground, the new US approach nonetheless represents a dramatic, unilateral change of the framework without negotiation with other parties than Israel. This unilateral approach has met severe criticism from both the Palestinians, Middle Eastern states, EU and the UN. Since the breakdown of The Road Map to Peace no real negotiations have taken place. The informal Israeli annexation of the West Bank by way of settlements has continued increasing Israeli sovereignty of Palestinian territory, in 2018 the US moved its embassy to Jerusalem and latest the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have normalized diplomatic relations with Israel. What does all that mean for a peaceful solution? A Policy Brief written by Palestinian political scientist and diplomat Yuad Jaradat and DIIS researcher Lars Erslev Andersen maintains that a sovereign Palestinian state remains the only sustainable solution – but will that ever happen?” (Source DIIS)
