About this book


Policy-makers are concerned with facilitating labour mobility in the EU. In the 1990s, take-up of employment in other EU countries has remained small. This seminal work looks at the obstacles faced by women in the nursing and banking professions when they migrate between member states. Basing her analysis on the personal accounts of migrants, and discussions with colleagues and regulatory bodies in Britain, Germany and Spain, the author sheds light on one of the major challenges confronting the EU.
