Thinking Space No.13: Accompanying refugees into self-employment – a field report from a project in Germany

In the framework of the European project RIAC[1], KIZ developed a set of approaches that lead to an accelerated integration of refugees in the German society. The group participating in the entrepreneurship programme included mainly highly qualified and skilled people who could not find an adequate job in Germany and therefore chose to participate in a programme aiming at self-employment. This thinking space presents the programme, its learning and makes suggestions what to consider when supporting refugees to become entrepreneurs.
