Europe's New Refugees: A Road Map for Better Integration Outcomes

Date published



This report by the McKinsey Global Institute entitled "Europe's New Refugees: A Road Map for Better Integration Outcomes" argues that Europe should ensure that refugees are integrated into the labour market, as well as society, so that the potential and benefits of migration are maximised. To arrive to this arguement, the report explains the factors that shaped individual journeys of this new group of refugees, and then outlines the important role of the EU in harmonising their response to this population of people. Finally, promising strategies being implemented in Europe to help integrate new arrivals are revealed as best practices to be drawn on.
