The EESC is pleased to announce the five winners of the 9th edition of the Civil Society Prize, which rewards initiatives which aim at the labour market integration of newcomers and all the people who are distant from the labour market and require specific support.
This joint LMO – European Commission conference aimed at 1) looking at the lessons learned from all the recent efforts for the labour market and social integration of refugees; 2) discuss on how these developments can be used to address other challenges across EU societies and labour markets, notably for giving more opportunities to other vulnerable or disadvantaged groups.
