We invite you to an international seminar "Labour market integration of newly arrived immigrants" that is organised by the Nordic Council of Ministers` office in Estonia, the UN Refugee Agency, the Ministry of the Interior and the Johannes Mihkelson Centre. There will be two seminars with the same programme, one will take place on 17th October in Tallinn and the second one on 18th October in Tartu.
There will be experts from Estonia, Norway and Sweden who will share their experience, and together with whom we will discuss labour market integration of newly arrived immigrants in Estonia, and various support measures that could be implemented in the country, and the role of different parties - public, private and third sector in an ongoing process. During the seminars we will also discuss the topic of study migration, and labour market integration and the overall situation of international students, who have made a decision to stay and work in Estonia. There will also be a moderated discussion with representatives from the side of newly arrived immigrants/ international students and local employers who will be able to share their experience and have an open discussion on the topic of labour integration.
From Sweden, our guest speaker is Anna-Maria Lundkvist-Monroy (Norrbotten County Administrative Board, Social Sustainability Unit) and from Norway it is Jens Lunnan Hjort (Norwegian Directorate for Integration and Diversity).
Both seminars are free of charge and in English.
