MIGIWE - Migration and Irregular Work in Europe
The two-year research project filled several large gaps in social science research, both on the national and international levels, and contributed to two disciplines: migration research and labour market research.
To provide a comparative analysis of the structure and dynamics of irregular foreign employment in Central European countries following the 5th Enlargement of the EU
Research methods included three complementary research approaches
• Secondary data analysis
• Expert interviews (including a structured multi-round Delphi-survey)
• 50 anonymous interviews with irregular migrant workers
At the international level, ICMPD closely cooperated with the MIGIWE research group, including research partners from the Czech Republic (Charles University) and Hungary (Panta Rhei Research).
