Labour Migration

Although foreigners have the right to equal treatment in the Czech labour market, in practice, they are more vulnerable for various reasons. In general, access to employment is harder for them, they are paid less for the same work and they tend to be exposed to worse working conditions. At the same time, the migrants' position in the labour market plays a crucial role in their process of integration into society.

The individual texts also address how migrant workers affect the Czech labour market and the impact of their presence on the competitiveness of the local labour force. The whole topic examines these and other often difficult-to-answer questions which labour migration raises.

The new EU Public Procurement Directive – a step towards better working conditions?

The link between public procurement and good (or bad) working conditions might not be visible at first sight. Nevertheless, in the European Union, the public purchase of goods and services has been estimated to account for 16% of GDP – a significant market that employs many people and is therefore worthy of closer observation in the framework of the Labour Citizenship (LABCIT) project.
