Policy Study

10/01/2022

Migration has become one of Europe’s most politically divisive issues. This Policy Study concentrates on two critical sectors – agriculture and care – that depend on migrant labour to function, and it demonstrates that migrant workers are often invisible in society, routinely subjected to exploitative working conditions, denied the basic social rights and protections afforded to local workers.

Yet, enabling migrant workers to actively participate in the social, civic and political life of their communities is key to building solidarity and fostering more resilient and cohesive societies across Europe.
