Today the Mutual Learning Conference on
‘Innovative approaches to integration and inclusion of migrants’
takes place by VTC with the participation of the Commissioner for Jobs and Social Rights, Nicolas Schmit, and
the Commissioner for Home Affairs, Ylva Johansson. It follows the Commission’s Action Plan on
Integration and Inclusion for the period 2021-2027
published on 24 November, laying the foundation for strategic guidance and concrete actions to foster the inclusion of migrants and EU
citizens with migrant background, which is essential for social cohesion and for a dynamic economy that works for all. As part of a series of mutual learning events organised by the Commission, the
conference presents an opportunity to exchange innovative practices, with a focus on skills assessment and development, as well as on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the labour market
integration and social inclusion of migrants and EU citizens with migrant background. Many of them are essential workers and help to fill skills gaps in various sectors, however, they often
encounter obstacles to accessing the labour market and social protection systems. The conference gathers around 160 policy experts from national administrations, representatives of civil society,
the Commission and economic and social partner organisations, who provide an overview of new approaches to integration and inclusion. Information material linked to the conference, thematic reports
and its final report will be published
