This document reviews the evidence on the impact of labor market integration of migrants, both for the migrants themselves as well as for their recipient countries. It summarizes indicators of migrants current levels of integration and examines empirical studies from across the LAC region and around the world, identifying common challenges and obstacles to integration, as well as policies that can help to overcome them. The document acknowledges the difficulties countries may face when promoting the labor integration of migrants, goes over some examples of how the IADB supports countries through those challenges, and provides policy recommendations to support the labor market integration of migrants in the region.
