ABSTRACT

The authors have studied the factors and specifics of the integrated labor market and workforce mobility in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). They rely on sociological polls to discuss what the people in the EAEU countries think about trends and prospects of economic integration and benefits and drawbacks of labor mobility. They have analyzed the key problems, the mechanism of the free movement of workforce in the EAEU; identified institutional and psychological barriers, offered two possible scenariosintensive and extensiveof the future of labor migration in the region and assessed the advantages and disadvantages of both. This allowed the authors to demonstrate how the migration and labor market policies can become better coordinated and, therefore, more balanced.
