Abstract

The EU has an incentive to attract highly skilled migrants from neighbouring countries. Yet as Alexander M. Danzer and Barbara Dietz write, there are a number of barriers which inhibit the ability of the EU to attract talented migrants from Eastern Partnership states. They note that one of the main obstacles is that temporary migrants from Eastern Partnership countries often suffer from occupational downgrading in the EU, with employment that fails to take full advantage of their skills. Alleviating these problems would allow the EU to better compete against other destinations, such as Russia and the United States.
