Provision og Labour Rights to Migrant workers (PROMI)

The project studies Norwegian political development and efforts to combat the exploitation of labor immigrants, including the effects of increased inter-agency cooperation and control activities in the fight against human trafficking, social dumping, and work-related crime. To put the Norwegian example into perspective, comparisons will be made with other Nordic countries.

A starting point for the study is the assumption that the Nordic welfare states are similar in their approach to labor market policy, but that Norway seems to lag behind compared to Finland's significantly higher number of investigations and convictions for the exploitation of migrants.

The project will also examine recent policy developments in light of an international human rights perspective, and pay special attention to the UN Convention for the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families
