Executive Summary

The conference "From Crisis Management to Everyday Practice: Lessons from the

integration of refugees for future labour market and social policies" – jointly organised

by the European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)

– took stock of recent developments in social and labour market integration policies

triggered by the arrival of asylum seekers and refugees and discussed whether and how

these developments can contribute to the overall modernisation of social protection

systems and labour market institutions. Speakers and participants concluded that some

policies and practices developed to foster the integration of refugees can be beneficial to

other vulnerable groups and had already been mainstreamed for the benefit of a wider

group of beneficiaries.
