  2. Migrants and informal Work in Hungary

    08 May 2008

    This report on Hungary examines the situation of irregular employment of migrants, its terms and conditions of work, its evolution, its causes and the policies needed to eliminate such a situation. The premise is that irregular employment is detrimental to national economies, to native and migrants workers in regular employment as well as to those workers involved in it. The study prepared by Judit Juhász adopts a Delphi method, which is amply explained in the paper. Suffice to say, it is about the considered perceptions of a problem by a number of experts, and the author's examination of these perceptions.
