SHARE- Towards Shared Interest Between Migrants and local Workers

Date: 21st November – 14:00-16:30 + Project partners meeting from 16:30 to 18:00
Venue: SOLIDAR Conference Room
Registration here

Central and Southern European countries have faced growing labour migration from both EU and non-EU countries. Mostly welcome by employers and some politicians, it has remained controversial for parts of general public due to perceptions of competition in the labour market and local reactions in places of concentration of migrant workers. This project responds to these conflicting economic, political and social interests by engaging a discussion with the European local publics. In the context of flexibilisation and precarisation of employment, migrant workers begin to share manifold aspects of their situation with host country domestic labour force. Yet, the solidarity of migrant and domestic is constrained by negative stereotypes and the lack of common platforms of sharing experiences. This project suggests that such a platform can be created taking a labour rights perspective.
