Chapter 17: Social security protection of migrants from outside Europe
The purpose of this chapter is to discuss how EU law can help to bridge the gap in migrant workers’ social security protection by facilitating the protection of rights of persons moving in and out of the EU. How does EU social security law impact upon the legal position of these persons and what are the strategic options for realising further improvements? A number of options are discussed, varying from adopting unilateral protective standards to signing up to the major global instruments on the protection of migrant workers. In between these options, some attention is paid to the possibility of linking up regional co-ordination standards, establishing an EU-Ibero-American pact.
