Mobility and migration
Mobility and migration in the EU contribute to well-functioning labour markets and to increased levels of productivity, competitiveness and growth. Eurofound research looks at the extent of labour mobility in the EU, the labour market challenges and what the social partners have done in the area of integration policy. Read an overview of the policy issues and Eurofound's work.
Some of the 33,000-plus labour market intermediaries operating in Europe recruit or transfer workers unlawfully, deceiving them about the nature of the job, the employer, the location, or other work conditions. Regulation of intermediaries is an important measure to combat trafficking for labour exploitation, as is the involvement of social partners.
A series of Eurofound projects explores the many challenges arising from mobility and migration issues in Europe.
