This network is no longer active and has been replaced by FreSsco (Free movement of workers and Social security coordination).
The European network on free movement of workers within the European Union coordinated by the University of Nijmegen's Centre for Migration Law (under the European Commission's supervision):
- kept track of legislation on free movement of workers and how it is applied;
- monitored how national courts interpret EU laws;
- raised awareness of the importance of free movement of workers as a fundamental right.
FMW on-line, the network's twice-yearly online journal, aimed to stimulate debate and research on this area of EU law.
- Annual European report on the application of EU legislation on free movement of workers in EU countries;
- Thematic and analytical reports on topical issues identified by the Commission or by the network itself (from 2010 onwards);
- Annual national reports, produced by the network with comments from the EU countries concerned (2006-2010).
- Selection of EU Court of Justice judgments on free movement of workers
- Follow up of case law of the Court of Justice: European Report on the Free Movement of Workers in Europe (2011 - 2012)
The network held:
- three seminars a year on particular themes;
- an annual conference to present the network's work over the previous year – attended by national civil servants, social partners, lawyers and judges.
