8b Characterising Research on Existing
Summary There are already many temporary labour mobility schemes
in existence. Documenting these and exploring their institutional
forms is seen as a useful step in making GATS Mode 4 mobility operational.
A first step will be to analyse in detail the specific agreements
that have been developed for temporary mobility between the European
Union and North African countries such as Egypt and Morocco, about
which there is already a certain degree of information. This will
then be extended into a broader search for information on temporary
mobility schemes and labour agreements that have been developed
on a bilateral basis in other parts of the world.
Key Research Questions
To define the characteristics of current
temporary mobility schemes.
To be able to offer comment and advice on
temporary mobility, especially in the context of GATS.
