This special issue of the Revue Européenne des Migrations Internationales investigates the connections between migration and labor in several countries (Canada, France, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, and Switzerland). In particular, it aims to advance the understanding of the effects of public policies on the situation of foreign workers. The general market environment, by sharpening labor deregulation and encouraging competition between workers, has led to a deterioration of migrants’ situation. At the same time, the tightening of migration policies has contributed to increase precariousness, uncertainty and dependence. It has transformed the relationships between employers and employees, as well as between the employees themselves. The ten empirical contributions provided in this special issue look at the effect of current policies on the gendered and racialized segmentation of the labour market; the impact of the multiplication of borders on new forms of migrant labour — including voluntary work; the morals of immigrant labor in its relations with (il)legality. This special issue also show how migrant workers may challenge such situations and create new opportunities, by implementing forms of resistance and collective mobilization, such as strike — or by organizing through unions and associations.

This journal aims to publish both empirical and theoretical research work on different subjects which take into account international migration and inter-ethnic relationships. While it favors the geographical area of Europe, the journal is open to other areas and other migratory systems throughout the world. Read more...
