WHO IS THIS FOR? This publication is aimed at study circles, civil society organisations, activists and labour research units.
This volume aims at providing an assessment of the different steps, difficulties and challenges that economic and humanitarian migrants must overcome during their journey across Europe, and the procedures in place from first reception on arrival to the integration in society and the labour market of asylum seekers and migrants. The three contributions of which this volume is composed focus on three case studies, Greece, Italy and Germany, and concentrate in particular on an analysis of the situation of women and minors, whose percentage among migrants (traditionally composed mainly of adult men) has steadily grown in the last couple of years, often catching largely unprepared authorities, institutions and organisations that must provide the necessary services to the new arrivals off guard.
