Restoring Respect Project

Would you like to  participate in an interview for the Restoring Respect Project. This short discussion will provide migrants with an opportunity to share their experiences on the challenges they faced to enter the UK labour market in a safe environment;

Their voices will be heard and listened; based on their testimonies, innovative tools to help migrants finding a job will be designed. Migrants participating in the interview will be given a £20 voucher code to get any ebook or copy of our International Journal of Restorative Justice.  

The Restoring Respect Project (RRP)

The Restoring Respect Project (RRP) is a two-year project co-funded by the European Commission which is seeking to facilitate migrants’ entrance into the UK labour market. Data have, indeed, demonstrated that most migrants do not manage to use their qualifications and educational background to find a job, when entering the UK labour market. Migrants, therefore, end up working in an environment completely unrelated to their previous knowledge and skills. This happens despite the presence of apprenticeships, training, vocational and educational courses and other instruments which want to facilitate the entrance of youths and adults in the UK labour market. The Restoring Respect Project wants to address this puzzle and understand the underlying reasons for this mismatch. In order to achieve this objective, we need to survey the opinions and experiences of migrants and refugees to have a first-hand impression of their experiences.

The Skype Interview 

The interview will be held in February (date TBD) online through Skype. It will last no longer than one hour. The interview will provide an opportunity to explore, share and discuss the opinions of migrants and refugees to have a first-hand impression of their experiences. Broadly, we would like to understand what challenges they encountered in entering the UK labour market. Their participation would help to design innovative tools – such as an e-learning platform – which want to help both migrants to have their skills and qualification recognized and UK institutions to be more efficient in helping them.
