Project description

The project is a 4-year research agreement where the Department of Labour supports research on labour migration to Norway conducted at the Frisch Centre and Fafo. The aim of the agreement is to develop an increased understanding of the factors that affect (i) the supply of labour migrants in Norway, (ii) their pay and working conditions, and (iii) how the Norwegian labour market, economy, and society are influenced by labour immigration. Research questions will be analyzed using approaches from various disciplines and multiple data sources. Project participants cover sociology, economics and law, and the empirical analyses will be based on comprehensive information taken from administrative registers, surveys and qualitative data.
