* Welcome and formal opening by Prof. Dr. M. Peter van der Hoek, President Forum for Economists International

Professor of Integration and Migration at the Erasmus University Rotterdam and senior researcher at the Netherlands Institute for Social Research.

* Keynote speech by Prof. Dr. Jaco Dagevos, "Syrians in the Netherlands: the first years of their post-flight lives" (Click here for an extended abstract)

In order to examine the position of the Syrian newcomers in Dutch society and the barriers to their integration in the Netherlands, the Netherlands Institute of Policy Research (SCP) conducted a survey among refugees who obtained an asylum status (and therefore a 5 year residence permit) between 1 January 2014 and 1 July 2016.
The survey shows that Syrians are just beginning to make their way into Dutch society. Participation in the Dutch labor market is currently a bridge too far; the great majority depend on welfare benefits.
