The economic integration of immigrants

Economic integration is addressed by means of quantitative analyses based on traditional indicators and the identification of explanatory factors, most notably language proficiency, prior learning recognition and discrimination. More targeted studies are also conducted on marginalization and exclusion, as well as on the strategies implemented by immigrants and by the organizations that receive them to foster their entry and retention in the job market.
