Mobility and Migration of Labour in the European Union and Their Specific Implications for Young People. CEDEFOP Document.
Tassinopoulos, Alexandros; Werner, Heinz; Kristensen, Soren
This document contains two papers that examine mobility and migration of labor in the European Union and discuss specific implications for young people. The "Foreword" (Jordi Planas) examines the practical and symbolic role that establishment of the right to freedom of movement for European citizens plays in the process of construction of the European Union. "Mobility and Migration of Labour in the European Union" (Alexandro Tassinopoulos, Heinz Werner) summarizes available literature on labor mobility and migration in Europe, provides a historical review of statistics on migration in Europe, and examines the implications of mobility and migration for education and training. The paper contains 127 references and 29 tables/charts. Appended are a discussion of classifying migrational movements and an executive summary of a panel report on free movement of persons. In "Support for Transnational Mobility for Young People" (Soren Kristensen), the following topics are examined: potential forms of transnational mobility among young people within vocational education and training; legal and administrative obstacles to mobility in various fields; obstacles to mobility that stem from the culture and attitudes of young people to transnational mobility and to their aptitude. The paper contains 17 references. (MN)
