After an introduction of the role and mandate of the European Labour Authority, its priorities for 2021-2022 and operational activities, the two distinguished panellists will jointly assess some broader trends in European labour markets, their imbalances, sector-specific challenges and recurring problems. The focus will be on the implications of all this for labour mobility within the EU and beyond. In how far could enhanced intra-EU mobility, a targeted upskilling effort and the possible contribution of third-country nationals contribute to tackling existing and forthcoming skills shortages? What about the situation of particular mobile groups, such as posted, seasonal, tele or care workers, commuting across borders? The Policy Talk shall also look at the operational aspects of ELA’s and ICMPD’s work.  

This event is targeting the migration authorities, Ministries of Labour and Social Affairs, as well public employment services of the Prague Process states.
