Labour Migration and Social Rights

Can we achieve a rights based approach to migration in the EU?


Documentation

Videos:

We will examine how we can integrate the migrant workers into the European labour markets by giving the migrant workers rights. But we want to do it in a way that avoids a rage to the bottom for wages and working conditions. We wish to avoid social dumping and the other downsides of migration and therefore we wish to put forward demands - to the governments and to the legislation. So one of the main questions is: Can we achieve a rights based approach to migration?

Wir werden analysieren, wie Migranten, die in der EU arbeiten, in die Europäischen Arbeitsmärkte integriert, und ihre Rechte gesichert werden können. Dabei kann es nicht darum gehen  das Lohnniveau zu senkenund  Arbeitsbedingungen zu unterwandern. Ein rechtlicher Rahmen, der gleiche Rechte sichert, verhindert Sozialdumping. Die Konferenz soll die Gelegenheit geben Forderungen an die EU und nationale Regierungen zu formulieren. Eine der Hauptfragen wird sein, wie wir erfolgreich einen auf Rechten basierenden Rahmen für legale Migration in Europa schaffen können.

Cette conférence examinera comment intégrer les travailleurs migrants dans les marchés européens du travail en leur octroyant des droits. Mais cela ne doit pas se faire au prix d'un nivellement par le bas des salaires et des conditions de travail. Cette conférence veut éviter le dumping social et les autres aspects négatifs de la migration économique et dégager des demandes à adresser aux gouvernements et des initiatives législatives.
