pilot labour migration

The Blue Birds labour migration pilot researched whether temporary labour migration can bring advantages to all concerned: MIGRANTS, the DUTCH LABOUR MARKET and COUNTRIES OF ORIGIN. The pilot aim was to identify advantages and disadvantages, constraints and risks to explore new ways to handle migration.

The pilot was an initiative by the Dutch Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Justice, and Social Affairs & Employment. It was implemented by the HIT Foundation, innovation platform for labour and migration.

The pilot was terminated prematurely in the summer of 2011. The final reports can be downloaded here:
