The Labour Market: A Response to the New Challenges
Pavilion G, conference hall G3

Now and in the coming years, there will be a large group of people in Russia who have returned from the Special Military Operation with injuries making their previous life impossible – for themselves and their surroundings. Up to 10% of the entire population is under guarantee. Much is already being done for the psychological, physical and social adaptation of the veterans. Yet to meet this challenge nationwide, best practices need to be brought together, and a systematic and scalable process put in place for the medical, psychological, social and economic reintegration of veterans and their families. How should the systematic work be organized for supporting combatants and their families? How should social adaptation and economic reintegration be built? How does this affect the economy? What is the role of companies, the state and NGOs in this? How can the experience of other countries, such as Israel, Armenia and the USA, be used?
