Before looking at the professional integration of migrant women in France, it is important to understand different aspects of French history, politics and economy, as well as the different representations and challenges that the complex phenomenon of migration has created in this country. In this article, we will discuss the notion of integration and how it has been understood in France. We will then look at the way in which this concept relates to the migration of women and the difficulties that migrant women face in the process of professional integration, including the consequences of these difficulties and finishing with the recommendations that have been made to combat them and to strengthen the capacity of migrant women to take action.

In this paper the Centre for Social Justice outlines several major barriers faced by disadvantaged individuals in the context of adult learning. It was drafted before the coronavirus pandemic’s inception and so focuses on boosting the prospects of low-skilled, low-wage employees in a labour market that, at the time of writing, was buoyant and fluid. However, many of the challenges, and solutions, outlined in this paper will be more salient than ever as we emerge from lockdown and pick ourselves up.
