Increased responsibility from social partners ensures successful migrant labour market integration in Denmark

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationResearchpeer-review


Social partners play a critical role in defining the nature and norms of the labour market in Denmark due to the entrenched collective bargaining system and the involvement of labour unions and employers’ organisations in the formulation of activation policies. In our research we have scrutinized the role of social partners and their perceptions of enabling factors and barriers faced by migrants, refugees and asylum applicants in the Danish labour market.
