The European Precariat: The free movement of workers in the era of precarious employment.

Daniel’s doctoral research investigates the relationship between the law on the free movement of persons, and the increase in flexible and precarious employment across Europe. In particular, the research projects seeks to demonstrate how the strict conditionality and categorization within the law can create a more uncertain and insecure system of free movement rights for EU migrants.
