Abstract

This dissertation was set out in an attempt to answer the question of whether considering all the obstacles that currently hinder the effective movement of labour, labour mobility is a realistic objective within the European Union. In addition, this dissertation considers the role of the mutual recognition of qualifications in the functioning of labour mobility, because if it can be determined that the lack of mutual recognition of qualifications is the main obstacle to transnational mobility, then labour mobility would appear doomed to remain an idealistic pipe-dream.

Both personal and telephone interviews were conducted for the purpose of examining the reality of total labour mobility within an internal market and to determine the importance of the mutual recognition of qualifications for its' facilitation. Generally it was found that labour mobility is an idealistic objective and that as matters at present, its success is largely dependent on the mutual recognition of qualifications.
