Conference: The frontier worker: New perspectives on the labour market in border regions, Oradea, Romania, 18-10 October 2012 [DL extended to 10th September]‏

The frontier worker: New perspectives on the labour market in border regions, Oradea, Romania, 18-10 October 2012

The European labor law, as well as labor regulations and social security of the Council of

Europe, are among the most dynamic branches of European law, and the free movement of persons is

one of the four fundamental freedoms of Community law. Although it is regulated both in the

constituent treaties and the modifying ones, as well as in the secondary legislation, there is some

legal issues incident to this freedom that raise a number of issues such as: who falls into the workers

category? The coverage of the intermediate categories and their rights? What kind of legal

restrictions that states may impose on the rights of workers and their families or the latter? The

border worker issue begins to become interesting also in the countries that entered in the last two

waves of extension in the context of the multiplication of the European groups of cross-border

cooperation. The conference allows debates, pondering and knowledge in the field of the European

social law, the border right, cross-border cooperation, especially since it has never held such a

conference in the border region of SE European Union.

The issues discussed during this conference want to find concrete solutions to the problem,

very important for the development of the border regions. The debates that will involve professors,

researchers and students will be supported by those who work in public or private institutions who

need clarification on the issues discussed in the three workshops:

1. Border region as a space of innovation

2. The frontier worker - between the European legislation and the national procedures

3. Free movement of labor force in the border regions
