Severe labour exploitation: workers moving within or into the European Union - Summary

Summary
Worker exploitation is not an isolated or marginal phenomenon. But despite its pervasiveness in everyday life, severe labour exploitation and its adverse effects on third-country nationals and EU citizens - as workers, but also as consumers - have to date not received much attention from researchers. This report identifies risk factors contributing to such exploitation and discusses means of improving the situation and highlights the challenges EU institutions and Member States face in making the right of workers who have moved within or into the EU to decent working conditions a reality.
