    In the spring of 2015, Jan Cremers (UvT-TLS) contributed to an international congress in Saint Petersburg dedicated to labor migration. The conference was organized by the state university of Saint Petersburg, the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation in the Russian Federation, the Center for Civil, Social, Scientific and Cultural Initiatives STRATEGIA and the European forum for migration studies. His contribution, titled Labor Recruitment and Economic Freedoms in Europe, was published in an English/Russian book. Based on the results of a three-year project with labor inspectors, he concludes that monitoring cross-border labor posting and recruitment through external service providers can be problematic. A lack of cross-border competence and cooperation, the difficulty of tracing circumvention in cross-border situations, and the weakness of the existing sanctioning mechanism all have led to frustration on the part of rule-enforcing institutions and other stakeholders.
