Recognition of qualifications and competences of migrants

Report funded by European Commission/DG EMPL



The study investigates the existing national practices for assessing, validating and recognizing formal, non-formal and informal learning of migrants based on selected experiences within and outside the European Union (EU). The study reviews national practices against the complex requirements of modern labour markets and differing needs of various skill groups of migrants. While taking into account latest developments in skills assessment procedures, set-up of bilateral or multilateral recognition frameworks and introduction of pre-migration measures, it explores policy approaches to counteract brain waste of different groups of migrants resident in the EU Member States.
