Conference on Labour mobility and migration: Migrants and local labour markets

Friday, January 19, 2018 from 10-17h in Tilburg

What role do employers and intermediaries play in shaping the current international labour market? And which consequences does this have for the position of migrant-employees, especially in the lower segments of the labour market? These issues will be addressed in the conference on labour migration and mobility organized by Tilburg University on 19 January 2018. During this day, researchers from INTERVICT, Social law and Reflect (Tilburg University) will present results from recent research projects on labour migration in the Netherlands. This research was made possible through financial support of Institute Gak.
