Two-Step Migration in the European Union: Increasing Mobility for Education, Then Work

Abstract

Since 1990 the number of achieved higher education degrees has exponentially grown in More and Less Developed Countries and, correspondingly, the number of internationally mobile students has more than tripled from 1990 to 2010. Concurrently, the European Union is progressing toward facilitated movement of students and workers across open international borders. In this study I examine the distribution of two-step migration in the E.U., the number of youth who are mobile outside of their home country first for higher education then employment purposes, and employment precariousness of these groups. I will analyze cross-sectional E.U. migration data to determine significant findings in educational and employment mobility. I expect to find that as mobility for educational purposes has risen, so too will the rate of mobility for employment reasons, such that the degree of employment precariousness will be lower for this two-step migration cohort. I expect that results will comprehensively demonstrate that Dual Labor Market and Human Capital perspectives intercept in two-step migration, showing migration is driven by both national and individual educational and labor motivations and outcomes.
