This report presents the results from a project that has aimed to generate new comparative knowledge about labour migration from Central and Eastern Europe to the Nordic countries, the factors that shape wage and working conditions for labour migrants and recruitment processes and practices. In the report we:

- Describe and compare patterns of labour migration between Central and Eastern Europe and the Nordic countries.

- Compare the working conditions of Polish labour migrants in in Oslo, Copenhagen and Reykjavik – and analyse how their labour market situation is shaped by variations in national regulations, systems of collective bargaining and local labour market structures.

- Analyse the particular role of recruitment agencies in introducing new migrants to the Nordic labour markets.



The research has been conducted by a team of researchers from Fafo (Norway), FAOS (Denmark), CIRRA/MIRRA (Iceland), CMR (Poland) and SOFI (Sweden).

Temporary staffing and labour migration to Norway

Norway has been the main destination among the Nordic countries for new labour migrants from Central and Eastern Europe. The temporary staffing industry has played an important role in the initiation, facilitation and sustainment of migration flows from new EU member states to Norway over the last few years, through the recruitment and employment of large numbers of Central and eastern European labour migrants.
