The Long and Winding Road to Employment (Careers)

An Analysis of the Labour Market Careers of Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Belgium

This publication is the result of the research entiteld "Careers of new migrants in Belgium" funded by the Belgian Science Policy and by the Federal Migration Centre.

The goal of this research was to study the evolution of the socioeconomic position of people who applied for asylum in Belgium in the period between 2001 and 2010 and who were still residing in the country at the end of the research period.

The study compares the integration on the labour market of asylum seekers in procedure to those who have been granted the status of refugees and aims at identifying factors that foster and hinder the socio-economic integration of these populations.
