Best Practices & Policy Demands of Migrant Workers – Issue 2

This report offers insights into the legal vacuum of EU labour and social policy in three sectors which may exhibit some innovative practices but depend above all on a significant number of migrant workers: platform work, care work and agricultural work. This report also provides an overview of best practices in union organising of migrant and mobile workers and 12 concluding demands for labour and social policy changes at national and European level.

The Rise of Insurgent Europeanism

Civil society in Europe and its attitudes towards the European project have changed dramatically in the past decade of multiple crises. This study mapped, tracked and monitored developments in European civil society over a two-year period, revealing the nature and implications of these changes.

From the Sea to the City: Ideas, good practices and next steps for a welcoming Europe

This report is the account of the four conferences held over the course of 2020 as part of the initiative From the Sea to the City, involving EU representatives, city represenatives, mayors and civil society to promote a progressive change in the EU migration policy.

Protecting and Informing Young European Workers – Issue 1

Workers Without Borders advocates for the European Institutions to do more to protect the rights of workers who move. In particular, it calls on the newly established European Labour Authority (ELA) to take initiative in to protect the rights of young workers and people in precarious forms of employment. In 2020 and 2021 we are publishing a series of reports with key recommendations to the ELA.

Planetary Politics

The global crisis of our time involves a complex of ecological, economic, technological and migratory challenges that no state is able to control. The result is a provincialization of our democracies with respect to the new planetary powers confronting humanity; it is from this that our increasingly impotent and rabid politics stems. As paradoxical as it may seem, it is precisely the decline of the nation-state that is the source of the great nationalist uprising of our time.

Protecting citizenship rights of young mobile European workers

In the context of the combined recession and pandemic that Europe is now entering, the risks to the European citizenship rights of young Europeans are increased. It is vitally important not only that the European Union supports the rights of young Europeans to move, but also follows up to ensure the continued protected and effective access to these rights over the course of the mobility of an individual, and in particular in the vulnerable phase of transition to work. This report offers a view to targeted initiatives which can specifically help the rights of young mobile workers.

Legal memorandum to the European Labor Authority

In 2020, at least 17 million European citizens live or work in another Member State. 

Among these European citizens are a large number of mobile young workers.  

The objective of this memorandum is to lead to the establishment of a special program and dialogue with the newly established European Labor Authority. The aim would be, in the long run, to build an advocacy case for the European Commission and European Labor Authority in order to promote the rights of these mobile young workers.

Rejuvenating Europe’s Democracy

The policy report ‘Rejuvenating Europe’s democracy’ comes at the end of a significant three year transnational study of the way young people do politics in Europe today, in a context of rising inequalities: EURYKA.

Wir Heimatlosen Weltburger

Citizens of Nowhere (German edition). Lorenzo Marsili und Niccolò Milanese stellen Aktivistinnen und Aktivisten vor, in deren Handeln Alternativen zum Status quo aufscheinen. Sie analysieren, wie Neoliberalismus und Globalisierung die Menschen zu ohnmächtigen Bürgern machen, in denen das Gefühl wächst, nirgendwo mehr zu Hause zu sein, und die sich daher verstärkt nationalistischen Positionen zuwenden.

Citizens of Nowhere: How Europe can be saved from itself

This book is at once a narrative of the experience of activism and a manifesto for change. Through analysing the ways in which neoliberalism, nationalism and borders intertwine, Lorenzo Marsili and Niccolò Milanese – co-founders of European Alternatives – argue that we are in the middle of a great global transformation, by which we have all become citizens of nowhere.
