Assessment and recognition of foreign qualifications and skills is a very complex issue that highlights the constant tension between two competing aspirations: on the one hand, the migrant workers’ aspiration to have their qualifications recognized in the country of destination, so as not to become de-skilled, and, on the other hand, the aspiration by the destination country to ensure consumer protection. The latter may be achieved by putting in place ad hoc procedures to ensure that workers coming from abroad are sufficiently qualified to meet the local requirements. According to the OECD, almost two out of every three migrants have acquired their qualifications abroad, and 26% of “highly educated” migrants are overqualified for the job they hold. The constant increase in human mobility, and the related increase in this kind of tension, means that there is a need to find solutions.
