This is a report on an ongoing two-year project, which started in September 2001 and is funded by the EU within the 5th Framework Programme. The overall objective of the project is to identify structural and institutional mechanisms that exist to maintain certain groups of workers peripheral and marginalised to segregated labour markets and to investigate the means for their integration. The study will focus on marginalisation regarding gender, ethnicity and long-term unemployment in segregated sectors of activity in the EU both in industry and services. The differences and similarities between these sectors of activity in Britain, Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain, the obstacles to entry and participation, and the means by which marginalised groups have been successfully integrated will be examined.
