Half of Europeans would consider moving for work

The European Commission has adopted a report setting out in a consolidated way the rights of Europeans to live and work in another EU country.

The report "Reaffirming the free movement of workers" also provides an update on legal developments in the past decade.

In addition, a new Eurobarometer survey on geographical and labour market mobility sheds light on Europeans' attitudes to worker mobility.
Currently, 2.3% of people in the EU reside in a Member State other than their own. However, the new Eurobarometer survey finds that 17% of Europeans envisage working abroad in the future and 48% would consider looking for work in another country or region if they were to lose their job.
