Low Skilled Migration

No single definition of low-skilled migration exists. “Low-skilled” can refer to people with few formal qualifications, people working in jobs that do not require such qualifications, or people working in low-wage positions regardless of their own educational background. Despite its multiple definitions, the concept of skill is prominent in migration debates. It plays a role in a range of different processes, including the dynamics of migrants’ social and economic integration, public opinion towards migration, the economic impacts of migration, and the design of admission policies.
