In the wrap-up for the Final Conference of the project ‘Towards shared interests between migrant and local workers’ - supported by the Europe for Citizens programme of the European Union - SOLIDAR is delighted to present the results of the research carried out over the past three years. The principal feature of the research has been a series of interviews conducted in five EU countries. Based on the research outputs, three policy briefs were produced on the following topics: precarity and social citizenship, competition and labour standards, and solidarity in fragmented workplaces. The publications outline the main issues in three interlinked thematic areas that often hamper solidarity between migrant and local workers and suggest main points of intervention in others to safeguard decent labour conditions.
On 21 November, the authors will convene in Brussels to present the results of the research and discuss them with relevant stakeholders and experts, such as the European Commission; Claude Denagtergal, ETUC Senior Advisor; Bela Galgoczi, ETUI Senior Researcher, and Manuel Lorenzo, representative of MPDL. If you’re eager to learn more about the five case studies examining migrant labour in a variety of occupational sectors in five EU countries register now for the Conference!
