In this issue we start beyond the European border; the authors of the first three articles tackle problems in construction labour in non-EU countries and around the globe. Swiss union officer Christopher Kelley examines the development of the construction industry over the years. Jill Wells treats the complete erosion of the labour relation in the case of the migrant workers in Qatar and Jens Lerche reports from a large project dedicated to construction labour in India and China. The second part of the subject articles is the result of the work of Erasmus student Alessia Gramuglia. During a short stay at the Amsterdam University she researched for an update of the Shifting Employment study on undeclared labour that CLR published in 2006 (as CLR-Studies 5).
Also included is a review by Jan Cremers (AIAS) of the ILO-report Fair migration - Setting an ILO agenda.
