The new issue of Migration Policy Practice focuses primarily on issues of labour market integration of migrants in Europe. In particular, this special issue summarizes a selection of presentations from the recent “Integration through Qualification (IQ)” symposium on labour market integration of immigrants in Germany and Europe that was held in Berlin on 6 April 2016. This includes articles by by Fabian Junge and Liam Patuzzi (Agency for the Development of Professional Education (Entwicklungsgesellschaft für berufliche Bildung)), Pedro Calado (High Commissioner for Migration of Portugal), Bernd Parusel (Swedish Migration Agency) and Alessandra Venturini (University of Turin and Migration Policy Centre, European University Institute).
In addition, this issue of Migration Policy Practice includes an article by Sabrina Juran (Population and Development Branch of the United Nations Population Fund) on international migration seen through the lens of Amartya Sen’s capability approach; and an article by Julia Black, Ann Singleton and Arezo Malakooti (IOM Global Migration Data Analysis Centre) which discusses IOM’s latest findings on migrant deaths on the Central Mediterranean route.
The editors would like to invite readers to spare a couple of minutes to participate in a short readers’ satisfaction survey. The purpose of this survey, which can be taken anonymously, is to help us identify our readers’ profiles, the institutions they represent and their primary interests in our journal. The survey’s responses should contribute, in particular, to adjusting and improving, as appropriate, the journal’s contents, style and reader’s experience.
