ROLE OF EUROPEAN MOBILITY AND ITS IMPACTS IN NARRATIVES, DEBATES AND EU REFORMS

Intra-EU Mobilities: Perceived Impacts

Intra-EU Mobilities: Perceived Impacts

May 5, 2019

Report

This paper summarises three studies on selected sending countries and border regions of the EU undertaken for Work Package 6. The first study analysed the perceived impacts of, and policy responses to, care-work mobility in two sending countries: Romania and Slovakia. The second study analysed the perceived impacts of cross-border practices in the Austrian-Hungarian and Austrian-Slovak border regions. The third study analysed return migration to Poland, with the aim of understanding the motivations for return and the labour-market integration of returning migrants.

The paper argues that, within the EU and particularly between Schengen states, “borders”, while no longer physical, continue to exist as boundaries linked to language, ethnicity, religion or dominant culture. In addition, bringing to the fore various examples of mobility patterns across selected borders, the paper argues for the concept of “centre of life” as potentially more useful for describing the different ways in which people are living in the EU, across international borders.
