    The year 2015 was defined by historically high refugee immigration to Europe. In Germany 1.1 million refugees have been registered. Also in 2016 continue to travel refugees to Germany, although the influx numbers are currently declining. It can be assumed that about 50 per cent of asylum seekers are granted the right in Germany. Most of the refugees were young men but the women represent a very important group. The integration of these people into German society and in the labor market is crucial for the success of the German refugee policy and social cohesion in the country. To work is not only a condition of economic success, but central to independent living and integration into German society. The requirements of a successful labor market, integration are favorable due to the positive employment situation. However, women particularly meet high barriers to German labor market access, even if they are qualified or have work experience in their origin country. Some time ago only 50 percent of refugees in Germany manage to find employment after five years of residence. So Germany is facing the great challenge to enable hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people to step into the labor market.
