Since 2010 Fafo Institute for labour and social research and the Frisch center for economic research has cooperated on a joint research program about labour migration to Norway, funded by the Norwegian ministry of labour. The main purpose of the research programme is to develop better understandings of the factors which influence flows of labour migrants to Norway, the development of wages and working conditions among labour migrants, and how labour migration affects the Norwegian labour market and economy. The research questions will be analyzed from different disciplinary perspectives and using different data sources. Sociologists, economists and lawyers participate in the project, and the empirical analyses are based on linked administrative registers, quantitative surveys and qualitative interview data.
