Turkey develops strategy to fight Roma unemployment
Turkish Employment Organization (İŞKUR) General Manager Mustafa Kemal Biçerli has said İŞKUR has started implementing a program geared toward boosting employment for the country's disadvantaged people, including Roma.
Speaking to the Anatolia news agency on Wednesday, Biçerli noted that the unemployment rate among Roma is much higher than the national average and that vocational training courses tailored for Roma interests will not only help reduce their joblessness but also facilitate the group's integration with the rest of society.
As part of what is called the “Employment Strategy for Roma,” İŞKUR focused on the 16 provinces that are home to the largest Roma populations in Turkey, including İzmir, Çanakkale, Edirne and Tekirdağ. The vocational training is conducted in coordination with relevant business sectors, and all participants are guaranteed a job upon their completion of the program.
