Project Details


After a period of closure, the European markets for labour and services have anew been opened for free movement, in recent decades spurring unprecedented flows of labour and skills from the countries around the Baltic
Sea and Eastern Europe to neighbouring countries. In the project "Moving Trades" we will analyse how this labour migration pattern affect skill formation systems and use of skills in the labour market in countriesin both the receiving and sending end of the new migratory flows. The interdependence between
countries and the national policy responses to the challenges will influence the outcomes on the national and regional level. On the receiving end we focus on Norway and a group of other countries (Denmark, Germany and Switzerland) that also have collective systems of vocational education and training (VET) based on apprenticeships.
