Abstract:Underrepresentation of immigrants in employment is regarded as one of the most urgent problems facing EU countries today. Active Labor Market Policies and Labor Market Mobility Policies are used to push employment, however the effectiveness of these policies was never evaluated for the migrants group specifically. Therefore this paper will investigate 'To what extent do Active Labor Market Policies and Labor Market Mobility Policies benefit labor market participation of immigrants?’. The focus will thereby be on ALMP and LMMP subcategories. The question is answered by means of a quantitative data analysis, which is based on data published by OECD and the Migration Integration Policy Index. As little research is available on the relationship of ALMPs or LMMPs and employment, the result of this research will be of relevance for national governments as well as EU policy makers as it widens the knowledge about integration tools. The findings of this study are not of statistical significance for which reason we have to conclude that neither Active Labor Market Policies nor Labor Market Mobility Policies benefit labor market participation of immigrants, which points to the need of a reassessment of the usage of these policies in its entirety.
