Sustainable and socially just transnational sectoral labour markets – JUSTMIG

01/11/2023 - 31/10/2025

The JUSTMIG project combines innovative research and data collection on labour market dynamics in both service and manufacturing sub-sectors across 6 EU Member States where fixed-term contracting of migrant workers occurs, and 3 candidate countries as source countries for workers. Besides sectoral labour market and employment relation analysis, the 8 experienced consortium partners will also develop expertise on the adjustment of industrial relations structures in the selected countries in response to increased employment of migrant workers on fixed-term or outsourced temporary contracts. Starting from the development and application of innovative participatory methodology, the project addresses and involves social partners and labour market institutions throughout the project.

GDPoweR is a collaborative research project on industrial relations in the platform economy, involving seven organizations from five countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Poland, Spain).
