The benefits and challenges are investigated with reference to the regions of origin, the regions of destination, the internal market and the individual workers. 10 case studies are presented, in order to showcase the problems encountered by the Local and Regional Authorities and especially the solutions adopted in relation to intra-EU labour mobility. The recommendations highlight the necessity to increase the availability of information on the labour mobility flows, in order to enable Local and Regional Authorities to make a more strategic use of the European labour market.
