Current report seeks to address the issue of EU-integration in terms of free movement of labour, capital, services and goods. Focus in this report is only on free movement of labour and services. We would like to address how free movement of labour/services and EU-regulations on social areas can affect national industrial relations and labour market regulations. The expansion of EU in 2004 proved to be a challenge for national labour markets throughout EU. Thus we found it interesting to analyse how different labour market models are affected by the challenge of migration from eastern European countries and free movement of labour. The report is a case study of two countries each with a different labour market model. Denmark is characterised as a coordinated labour market model and United Kingdom is characterized as a liberal labour market model. We seek to investigate the issue through Europeanisation theory and labour market theory to understand the impact of EU-regulation and free movement of labour on the different labour market models. In conclusion, we find that the impact of EU-regulation and free movement of labour and services is different for each case. The difference in result is due to the different labour market models in each case. The results of the Danish analysis showed that the Danish labour market model has faced challenges to adapt to the requested EU-regulation and the free movement of labour and services. In the United Kingdom the impact of EU-regulation has proved to be less difficult and brought several benefits for the British workers whereas free movement of labour has increased competition for workers in low skilled jobs.
