Highly educated immigrants even more important than highly educated Belgians on labour market
According to the Socio-Economic Council of Flanders, many highly educated immigrants work under their qualifications and skills level. Unemployment is also 7 times higher compared to highly educated Belgians. Not only is this a waste of societal capital but also a discouraging example for the rest of the immigrant community. The solutions will have to come from all parties involved. The government has to set up and implement a proactive diversity policy, but employers and employees will have to contribute too, through life-long learning or the study of a second official language for example.
