Empowering Migrants for Employment EME

The Empowering Migrants for Employment EME project is about mutual learning. Together, the transnational partners in Belgium, Sweden and Finland will enhance their knowledge of good socially inclusive and empowering practices from each country. This will be done by documenting, exchanging, evaluating and adapting good practices, innovative working methods and expertise towards the empowerment, inclusion and better employment of immigrants. The aim of the EME project is to identify best practices on a national level and to share them between project partners on the transnational level. The main partner of the project is Worker´s Educational Association WEA of Finland.

Background

Tampere University is responsible for the comparative and evaluative study of the project together with Free University of Brussels (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, VUB) and European Minds (Sweden). The targets of the evaluation are the best national practices identified and shared in the project, the joint learning process between project participants and added value and impact of the project in a national level. The research evaluates the project during development in order to make early improvements and to assist the project in different phases.
