Iiris Ranta, who recently graduated from the University of Jyväskylä with a master’s degree in intercultural management. While completing her thesis on international talent recruitment and retention in the city of Jyväskylä, Iiris focused on the topics of labour migration and the internationalization of higher education.
The results of her thesis support the idea that in order to create successful ecosystems and services for international job seekers, public governance should turn to the knowledge and experiences of the internal talent which already exists locally.
Additionally, we talked about a very important articles, which you might recall from our coverage last month, centered on an article written about the Home Care Allowance received by stay-at-home moms in Finland. The article focused on the benefits available to migrant women who stay at home to raise their children. The article suggested that migrant women stay at home because they have this allowance, and would not work if they had the opportunity.
