Nordic integration and settlement policies for refugees

This report, commissioned by the Labour Market Committee of the Nordic Council of Ministers, aims to provide policy-relevant knowledge by conducting a comparative analysis of refugee labour-market integration in Scandinavia. The study investigates the divergent impacts of integration programmes and settlement policies for refugees from different backgrounds and it examines the labour-market integration of refugees in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, searching for explanations of cross-national differences. The analysis was conducted on participants in the integration programme from cohorts that hold residence permits and were settled in a municipality from 2008 to 2016.
