Increasing structural unemployment and the lack of labour have been predicted to be one of the most critical and growing problems ofor Estonian labour market. One of the solution for this is increasing immigration and regulating migration policy, that would bring highly educated and skilled workers to Estonia. However, the opportunities to relieve the lack of labour by increasing immigration and the fiscal impacts of immigration that would be necessary for planning migration, labour, education and social policy in Estonia have not been thoroughly studied. Integration of migrants with different language and cultural background is a continuing challenge for Estonian social and educational system, whereas the highest shortcomings are in evidence-based and tested methods and tools to manage the challenges derived from multicultural society and to use the opportunities it offers.
Within the first stage of the study the opportunities and challenges related to migration to solve the problems derived from demographic changes in the labour market (especially in the context of educational and social system) will be mapped, analysed and predicted. In the second stage, evidence-based solutions (practical models, measures and learning materials) will be offered to educational, labour market, social and cultural problems derived from increasing migration.
