The government has allocated 140 million kroner over the next four years to programmes aimed at increasing employment levels amongst women who have migrated to Denmark.
The aim of the investment is to bring more women from non-Western countries onto the labour market, the Ministry for Immigration and Integration wrote on its website.
"It is absolutely crucial that we get more non-Western women working. Employment amongst refugees and immigrants is improving in general, but women are still some way behind – including those that have been in the country for many years," immigration minister Inger Støjberg said via a press statement.
"That means that many of those women are without work and knowledge of the norms and values of Danish society, and are in practice isolated from Danish society," Støjberg added.
