INTERNATIONAL LABOUR MIGRATION AND STRUCTURAL CHANNELS: A CASE STUDY OF UKRAINIAN WORKING MIGRANTS IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC
Languages of publication
This article investigates the role of economic restructuring in the construction sectors in the Czech Republic and Ukraine. Our analysis is based on a unique dataset obtained via questionnaire surveys in Zakarpattia region of Ukraine and multivariate models linking prior work experience in the Ukrainian construction sector and the likelihood of working in the Czech construction sector, net of other theoretically important controls. The results of our research show that integration of the Czech and Ukrainian construction sectors has created international “structural channels”, that push migration from Ukraine to the Czech Republic along occupational lines. We draw implications of the analysis for the broader international economic restructuring and integration in the European Union.
