Managing the Immigration and Employment of non-EU Nationals in Ireland. Executive Summary Martin Ruhs


This paper aims to contribute to current debates about how to best manage the immigration and employment of non-European Union (EU) nationals in Ireland. Although taking a general approach that considers all potential avenues for migrating and taking up employment in Ireland, the paper focuses on labour immigration policy, as opposed to humanitarian policies that are concerned with refugees and asylum seekers. Furthermore, the emphasis of the discussion is on the admission and employment of migrant workers rather than on the equally important but analytically distinct issues of migrants’ social and economic integration.
