NADINE recognises that smooth access to employment is a key ingredient in the successful integration of migrants into their new societies. Individual needs when it comes to accessing the labour market are determined by who we are, where we come from, what skills we have and the socio-cultural and material contexts in which we are placed. Societal norms and routines concerning work, education, family life, consumption and recreation greatly determine our expectations, as well as our ability and/or willingness to change those expectations in a new country. Without a comprehensive understanding of these factors, public policy measures to integrate migrants at individual or societal level are likely to fail.
The NADINE platform aims to use open data to gain a better understanding of migrant realities and the challenges associated with their integration. Data about local services and migrants will feed into user-friendly ICT tools for employability and career guidance, while assessing the supply of and demand for migrants' skills. The platform will also focus on the social, educational and cultural needs of migrants and how these fit in with existing services offered by local hosts.
We aim to engage people in a fruitful discussion on the NADINE system and how it allows public authorities and guidance professionals to offer a personalised service to migrants based on real needs and the opportunities available to them.
