Labour Mobility, Social Inclusion and Resettlement

We implement projects that help migrants find their place in Dutch society. We also assist our partners (government, employers etc.) to recognize and welcome the positive contributions that migrants make to our society. Promoting migrant inclusion and social cohesion is at the core of our work.

We promote labour migration by matching talent from outside of Europe with Dutch employers. Labour mobility is an international phenomenon, with labour migrants making up nearly two-thirds of the global number of migrants. When well-managed, labour mobility is highly beneficial to migrants, their countries of origin and the European economies.
