We are pleased to invite you to the side event on private sector engagement. Register here.
This side event is organized in the margins of the IMRF. It aims to take stock of lessons learnt from existing initiatives engaging the private sector for enhanced migrants’ socio-economic (re)integration and lay the ground for further interventions. The side event will cover concrete examples and lessons learnt of private sector engagement for the integration of immigrants and the reintegration of returnees, bring different stakeholders together and encourage a discussion on how current approaches could be replicated, improved or expanded.
