The European Labour Authority and rights-based labour mobility

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

In his State of the Union Address 2017, expressed at the European Parliament in September 2017, European Commission’s President Juncker announced plans to establish a new European agency, a European Labour Authority (hereafter ELA), in order to foster fair mobility in Europe. The negotiations between the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament on the proposal, launched by the Commission in March 2018, ended in the first half of 2019. This article addresses the following items after providing some background information:
• Existing problems with labour mobility: analysis of reasons for insufficient enforcement and other problems (EU and Member States);
• The core business and added value of ELA (e.g. coverage of all relevant topics, existing structures and tools, new structures and services, pooling, more comprehensive services and synergies);
• Challenges and risks (e.g. gaps, new interfaces, overlaps, complexity, feasibility, resources);
• Short summary and outlook.
