Empowering Migrants for Employment EME

Empowering Migrants for Employment EME aims to enhance the employment of migrants. During the project we want to find effective common practices and working methods to recognize the skills and the potential of immigrants. The best practices are evaluated, tested and documented in a method book.

The project is carried out by four organizations in three countries: EVA vzw in Belgium, Työväen Sivistysliitto TSL / Workers' Educational Association WEA of Finland, and Arbetarnas Bildningsförbund and Piteå Municipality in Sweden.
