Labor market security in the light of external labor migration: new theoretical findings


  • Anna Lialina

    (Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University, Russian Federation)


Conceptualizing the consequences of external labor migration for the development of the labor market of the receiving territory is an extremely important and relevant area for studying migration effects. It develops in parallel with the intensification of labor migration processes in the world, the expansion of the methodological tools and the information base of research. The subject of this paper is the impact of external labor migration on the labor market security. The study aims to substantiate the relevance of a new interdisciplinary approach to the study of the effects of labor migration on the host labor market, namely the analysis of risks and threats, labor market security factors in the sphere of external labor migration. The study is carried out using methods of systematization and classification, general dialectical methods. The analysis suggests that labor market security in the sphere of external labor migration can act as an independent area of research for migratory consequences in labor markets. It relies upon the findings of national security studies and the established directions for studying the impact of external labor migration on the labor market of the recipient territory
