The motivations of migrants for travelling to Europe vary, and the quality of the processes involved in their settlement and contribution to social and economic development are inextricably linked to their prospects of finding and sustaining good-quality work.

This book explores the labour market integration of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers across seven European countries: the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Italy, Switzerland and the UK. Using empirical data from the Horizon2020 SIRIUS Project, it investigates how legal, political, social and personal circumstances combine to determine the work trajectory for migrants who choose Europe as their home.

Simone Baglioni is Professor of Sociology in the Department of economics and management at the University of Parma, Italy. He was the PI and coordinator of the EU funded Sirius project.

Francesca Calò is Lecturer in Management in the Department of Public Leadership & Social Enterprise, Faculty of Business and Law, at The Open University, UK. She was the UK researcher and project manager of the EU funded Sirius project.
