Nordregio Magazine 3 2021

COVID19 and labour market

The COVID19 pandemic has affected so many areas of our lives and had a major impact on the labour market. In this issue of Nordregio Magazine, we explore the ways and intensities in which the pandemic has affected the integration of newcomers and immigrants into the Nordic countries and how it impacted their chances of entering and remaining in the labour market.
The issue is produced in collaboration with the Nordic co-operation on integration and inclusion, administrated by the Nordic Welfare Centre. The co-operation programme is designed to support the Nordic countries’ integration efforts by bolstering Nordic co-operation on the integration of refugees and immigrants through the sharing experiences and development of new knowledge. Nordregio has been working closely with the Nordic co-operation on integration and inclusion for the past five years.
