Research

Transformative characteristics and development impacts of temporary migration will be studied in highly industrialised societies, transformation countries and developing countries, representing regions sending and receiving migrants, as well as countries of transit.

Theoretical and empirical studies will be accomplished to attain an understanding of the current characteristics and related policy impact of temporary transnational migration and mobility.

Evidence-based information will be gathered through a review of policies and data on temporary migration, with a focus on the bi-directional flows of people between Europe and Asia.

EURA-NET addresses three basic research questions:

  • What are the transformative characteristics and development impacts of the temporary transnational migration of people?
  • What are the policy implications of people’s temporary migrations at national, regional (European and Asian) and international levels?
  • What can we learn from temporary migrations in the Euro-Asian transnational space to better understand other regions?

Interviews will be conducted with individual migrants (and non-migrants) and national policy-makers in China, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Thailand, Turkey and Ukraine.

The same approach will be applied to reviewing policies and data on temporary migration in the wider European and international contexts.

Findings from the EURA-NET project will be disseminated through scientific papers, policy briefs, policy reports and the project website to foster exchange and discussions with academics and researchers, policy-makers, employers and workers’ organizations, civil society organizations, migrant communities and the general public.

Policy seminars and workshops will be organized at national and European levels.
