Refugees and the labour market: looking for cost-effective models of assistance [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
While Commonwealth-funded settlement services for refugees stop short of employment assistance, mainstream employment programs are generally not equipped to address the particular and complex needs of refugees. Drawing on interviews with service providers and an examination of the Given the Chance pilot program which offered refugees a flexible case-managed combination of job skills training, mentoring, work experience and personal support, the researchers argue that targeted labour market programs combining individualised and group delivery can be a cost-effective approach to assisting refugees to enter the workforce.
