This regular seminar is focused on the roles of migration and free movement in European integration – an area critical to understanding the direction of employment and industrial relations. 

This seminar is an opportunity to discuss these issues in an open forum and consider their implications for industrial relations.

The presentations will be followed by a buffet lunch.


Bernard Ryan, Professor of Migration Law at the University of Leicester, will discuss the impact of EU labour migration and regulation. His research expertise relates to migration and the law and he is co-chair of the Migration and Law Network, which aims to promote the field of migration law in British universities. 

Eugenia Markova, Senior Lecturer in Economics at Brighton Business School, University of Brighton, will present on a recently completed empirical study of the transnational mobility and integration patterns of Bosnians-Herzegovinians, Ukrainians, Filipinos and Indians in the UK to discuss the impact of migration regulations on third-country nationals.

She has an extensive research, consultancy and publication record on the economic and social aspects of labour migration, having covered the UK, Greece, Bulgaria and Spain.
