Regional und International Labour Market Studies

Research perspectives

In the Research Area "Regional and International Labour Market Studies" (Regionale und internationale Arbeitsmarktforschung) the perspective adopted transcends borders. Regional and international mobility of labour, capital and goods has increased, altering the spatial distribution of human capital, cultural diversity, and the basis on which companies make decisions concerning location. The increasing labour mobility in the European Common Market and the surge in humanitarian migration has created new challenges for labour market- and integration policies. At the same time, differences in employment opportunities and wage prospects across individual groups in the labour market, as well as regional disparities, are growing. Changes on the labour markets can no longer be analysed meaningfully without taking international and regional dimensions into account. For this reason, both dimensions are an indispensable part of the research programme at IAB.
