The role of civil society in supporting migrants´ labour market participation in diverse areas: A comparative study of Sweden and the United Kingdom
The role of civil society is increasingly recognised in supporting residents of diverse neighbourhoods in accessing local labour markets. This project focuses on disadvantaged groups in the labour market and explores the role of civil society in supporting their access to employment. We focus on groups of migrant descent, whose labour market participation falls considerably below native populations.
This project investigates the mechanisms and the conditions under which civil society initiatives support labour market participation in diverse neighbourhoods in Sweden and the UK. Central mechanisms may refer to different modes of organisation, and conditions to national and local socio-economic contexts.
