From February 2021 to July 2022, SEO Amsterdam Economics will participate in a consortium of universities and research centres from 10 different Member States in the POSTING.STAT project to promote the evidence basis through the collection and analysis of national micro-data. The geographical scope of the project covers the six main ‘sending’ Member States (Germany, Poland, Italy, Spain, Slovenia and Luxembourg) and the six main ‘receiving’ Member States (Germany, France, Belgium, Austria, the Netherlands and Luxembourg) of posted workers. Extracting administrative micro-data from the competent public authorities, complemented by desk research as well as by expert interviews, should result in more accurate figures on the scale, characteristics and impact of intra-EU posting, both in the main receiving and sending Member States.

Main research topics:

  1. The scale, characteristics and impact of intra-EU posting;
  2. The scale and characteristics of irregular intra-EU posting;
  3. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on intra-EU posting;
  4. The impact of Directive 2018/957/EU amending Directive 96/71/EC.

The output will be presented in 10 country reports. Based on these national contributions, a synthesis report will be produced as well. The results will be disseminated through targeted publication strategies (e.g., country reports, infographics, synthesis, book, academic journals).
