The aim of the conference is to explore the conditions for successful social orientation and integration in small and rural communities, and to highlight inspiring bottom-up practices and link them to research and policy frameworks.

Diversity of Migrant Women – How to improve labour market integration of migrant women? 

European Migration Network 

25 November 2022

Women account for around 50 per cent of migrants in Finland. Migrant women form a diverse group having different reasons for migrating and different personal attributes: women arrive to Finland as family migrants, labour migrants, students, asylum seekers, refugees, and beneficiaries of temporary protection. Despite of their different backgrounds, migrant women seem to face the same obstacle: it is challenging to gain access to the Finnish labour market. One of the key questions of the integration policies in Finland is how to guide migrant women towards integration services and the labour market more effectively. EMN Finland’s national conference aims to tackle abovementioned issues of employment of migrant women and gain new insights from national and international experts.
