Abstract:The issues involved in the labour market integration of immigrants are broad and numerous, and so should also be the policy responses. The previous two publications of the "Jobs for Immigrants" series (OECD, 2007 and 2008a) have highlighted a broad range of challenges that need to be tackled in order to achieve the objective of integrating immigrants and their children into the labour markets of OECD countries. The resulting policy recommendations are summarised in Box 0.1, along with examples of good practices from the countries previously reviewed. While these issues are naturally also important for Austria, Norway and Switzerland, a number of additional findings emerged from the three most recent country studies, highlighting new issues and shedding new light on others. This introductory chapter summarises these new findings and their implications for policy.
