Posted Workers between Work Casualisation and the Precarisation of Migration

The article examines the transformations of work, labour casualisation, and the precarisation of migration, deepening the links between these phenomena and the social consequences of their intertwining, such as the double precarity affecting migrant workers, and examining the significance of contemporary migration policies which pave the way for a wider spreading of precarity and which anticipate corresponding labour laws. The article – which considers the European context – focuses on posting of workers as an example of the convergence of the aforementioned processes, and an empirical space for social research in which to test new forms of precarity and stratification, and the transformation of migration policies increasingly focused on the concepts of temporariness and circularity.
KEY WORDS: precarisation, work transformation, migration, posted workers
