TW2.1.01 (Tower Two)
We invite papers analysing youth labour migration and its impacts for receiving and sending countries within the EU, as well as the movement of young workers from the global south to the EU area. Contributors could focus on working and living conditions of migrant workers and returnees and the role of policies and institutions for integrating and excluding young migrants (e.g. social security systems, labour market regulation and migration policies), as well as actors, including labour market intermediaries, trade unions and employers, in shaping migration patterns and labour market outcomes of migrant youth.
