Economic & Market Considerations: Education and Labor Mobility

One of the central goals of the European Union has been to create a common or internal market based on the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital. However, while significant progress has been made towards facilitating the free movement of travelers, goods, capital, and services, the movement of workers (or labor mobility) has been more difficult to achieve. These low levels of mobility have caused concern among European leaders and businesses that this stagnancy may undermine Europe's competitiveness and inhibit the availability of skilled workers.
