The Leonardo Da Vinci project R.I.S.E. (Refugee Interactive Skills for Employment) aims to improve job opportunities for Refugees and Asylum seekers.
One deliverable of the continuing project is to produce reports on the situation of asylum seekers and refugees as well as an analysis of their skills gaps and support needs to address these within all three partner countries: The United Kingdom, The Republic of Ireland and Germany. The R.I.S.E.-partners compiled information on legal frameworks, asylum procedures, best practice concerning the support of refugees and asylum seekers, as well as results of interviews and focus group meetings. The project puts a focus on the areas of Birmingham (with stakeholder analysis from the West and East Midlands and the East of England), Dublin, as well as Ingolstadt and Bavaria.
This comparative analysis is made up by five main questions:
• What the asylum legislation is like?
• How the asylum process is structured?
• How organized education, training and integration courses for asylum seekers / refugees are organized?
• How do asylum seekers / refugees access to the labour market?
• Which are the main needs according to the user-groups / stakeholders?
