Author The New European

Welcome to The New European, the online magazine of UNITEE, the New European Business Confederation, dedicated to highlighting the great contributions New Europeans bring to our societies.


The New European has entered a partnership with the IOM and its program Skills2Work. In the following weeks and months, these pages will showcase some of the success stories from the EU countries participating to the program and taken from the digital platform FromSkills2Work.
The first article of the series introduces the story of Ferry, who left Iran and is now a self-employed hair-stylist in The Netherlands.


Skills2Work is an EU-supported project focusing on labour market integration of recognized refugees in Belgium, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Employers play an essential role in the integration of refugees. The Skills2Work project explores the benefits and challenges of recognising migrants’ skills, knowledge and competencies; and subsequently recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce.
