About the project

The primary aim of the project is to analyse how the expansion of temporary agency work in Norway is linked to changes in the Norwegian labour market and its industrial relations, how  it is interwoven with wider processes of globalisation. Moreover, the project examines how this challenge to the Norwegian welfare society has been met by employers’ associations, unions and the state.

The project also aims at analysing labour market intermediaries and their cross-border networks as facilitators of labour migration to Norway. Furthermore, the project examines the experiences and proactiveness of individual workers being recruited through temporary work agencies.
