Labour markets have become more international, more interlinked.  Many employees now expect that their work will take them abroad, to new labour markets.  Likewise, labour markets like ours in Germany require migration to meet the skills needs we have at home.  At the IAB, we see this internationalisation not only in research but also on a practical level. Interest in our research from foreign policymakers and experts used to be the exception; now it’s the norm.  For this reason, we want to offer you a bespoke international section in our online magazine: where you can access the latest English-language research and analysis in a way which is tailored to the interests of our international partners.

You may not be able to put this magazine on your bookshelf, but we hope that it will be your go-to source for labour-market analysis on your virtual coffee table.

Happy reading!
