Seminar on the socioeconomic integration of people with a migration background

On 10 October 2019, the Socio-Economic Council of Flanders (SERV) and the Diversity Committee, together with researchers of the IMMILAB project organized a study morning on the socio-economic integration of people with a migrant background.

Before the summer, the SERV and the Diversity Commission launched 60 actions to close the ethnic gap in the employment rate in Flanders. The first results of the IMMILAB project provide insights to better understand the progress of integration processes.

The following researchers from the IMMILAB project explained their research results on this study morning:

  • Dries Lens, Ninke Mussche and Ive Marx (Center for Social Policy - University of Antwerp) on the use of posting in Belgium and on self-employment among immigrants in Belgium
  • Jonas Wood, Julie Maes, Naomi Biegel and Karel Neels (Center for Longitudinal and Life Course Studies (CELLO) - University of Antwerp) on work-family trajectories of Belgian women and women with a migration background
  • Valentine Fays, Valentine Jacobs, Benoît Mahy and François Rycx (Université libre de Bruxelles (CEB / DULBEA) and Université de Mons (human Org) on wage discrimination and over-education.
