In a WU blog report about internships for refugees, Dirar Alshwikh Alabd, former intern at the Research Institute for Human Capital and Development, is featured.
The WU internships for refugees are targeted at academically educated refugees in the fields of economics, social sciences, or other suitable academic disciplines and meant to assist their sustainable integration in the Austrian labor market. Dirar joined the WiC from March to May 2017 to support the project "Displaced Persons in Austria Survey (DiPAS)".
The Wittgenstein Centre aspires to be a world leader in the advancement of demographic methods and their application to the analysis of human capital and population dynamics. It is a collaboration among the World Population Program of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), the Vienna Institute of Demography of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (VID/ÖAW) and the Demography Group and the Research Institute on Human Capital and Development of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU).
