The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the European Union (EU) experience of the mobility of skilled labor migrants and to draw lessons from this experience for the integration of Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) members. The EU experience of free mobility is evaluated in two specific contexts: intra-EU migration after the 2004 and 2007 EU enlargements and migration to the European Union from the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) countries. The study confines its attention to labor market aspects of skilled labor mobility.
