The political economy of migration in an integrating europe

Objective

The PEMINT project's objective is to understand how decision-making processes concerning labour recruitment by national and multi-national firms lead to different outcomes in terms of labour mobility and international migration under the impact of different welfare provisions, fiscal systems, and regulatory frameworks. Despite the enhanced Europeanised resonance that free movement, welfare and fiscal systems have acquired, these systems remain strongly embedded in national political, institutional and social contexts, creating problems of 'incomplete European integration'.
The project's objectives can be organised under four headings:
implications for labour recruitment;
problems of incomplete European integration;
individual agency and unexpected outcomes;
the impact of emerging institutions of global governance.
