Gaps in the EU Labour Market Participation Rates: an intersectional assessment of the role of gender and migrant status

01.12.2020 / Created by (EMWF)

This Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography study uses data from the EU Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS) to analyse how intersecting social statuses shape labour market participation.

The report focuses on the intersection between gender and migrant status and assesses the likelihood of EU mobile and non-EU born women to participate in the EU’s labour market. Additionally, it considers how education, marital status and parenthood, highlighted by research as key determinants of labour market participation, interact with gender and migrant status.

Overall, the report confirms that intersectionality is a fruitful analytical approach for improving the understanding of the different and complex mechanisms that may shape labour market participation of women. In particular, in light of the interrelated effects of gender and migrant status, the report points to the need for a comprehensive strategy for the integration of non-native women (both EU mobile and non-EU born) in the labour market.
