The management of refugee crises is one of the most challenging problems of EU and some other countries due to its complex social, political and economic stages. This process requires rapid and effective steps to form necessary conditions for the integration of refuges into society. This can only be possible if the synergy and cooperation between the EU countries and other stakeholders is achieved. Stated by many recent studied by UNİCEF and UNHCR, many unaccompanied children and weak women form the great part of immigrants and deserve urgent help for their socio-economic integration.
One of the most fundamental measures to be taken is the inclusion of immigrants into labor market. Because the complete and durable integration of refugees is possible with quality job creation, vocational education and economic welfare of these people. Another critical problem is discrimination, xenophobic and anti-immigration approaches of society they immigrate for chance of life. The undesirable effects of migration process and following xenophobic and discriminative approaches in hosting countries lead to psychosocial and posttraumatic stress disorders.
The current situation and refugee profile in each country should be analyzed, challenges and opportunities related to social inclusion and inclusion into labor market should be unfolded, different actions, measures and practices at various EU countries have to be analyzed and compared and finally a series of proposals for a better socio-economic inclusion of refuges have to be put forward. Distinguished online language modules, supporting entrepreneurship skills, education modules on public services and available rights, creating of effective awareness exercises to increase hospitality of hosting countries’ people with cultural and social integration, exchange of good applications and experience sharing are necessary measures and studies that are planned within the project. The details are open to be discussed with the partners.
