What are the main obstacles to integration for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in the European Union? What models of integration can be found in Europe and what is their impact? How can vocational guidance policy and practice contribute to integration? What specific competences and knowledge are needed by practitioners and others working with refugees, asylum seekers and migrants? An interdisciplinary team of European scholars and practitioners set out to answer these and other questions.
