This half-day conference will bring together Irish and international speakers to provide a comparative overview of approaches to identifying labour shortages, and related migration policy formulation. Recent policy developments in Ireland and Europe indicate that migration is one, increasingly well established, part of the response to identified shortages. The conference will also provide insights into new measures used to compete for migrant workers needed to fill identified skills and labour gaps.
