Why do we do this?
Women with refugee and migrant backgrounds are grossly under or misemployed. The employment rate for refugee women is on average 45%, compared to 62% for refugee men and 51% for other non-EU born women.
At the same time, when refugees find employment, almost 60% of employed tertiary-educated refugees in the EU are overqualified for the jobs they occupy, more than twice the level of the native-born and also well above the levels for other migrant groups.
