Abstract: The aim of this article is to analyse the role and determinants of labour migration in EU labour markets depending on migrants' nationality of origin, manpower qualifications, the characteristics of migrants in the labour market and their origin inside or outside the EU. Immigration to EU countries is less sensitive to variables representing labour market imbalances, such as relative wage levels and relative unemployment rates than to variables representing the networks effects which reduce migration costs. However, the effect of these variables on immigration flows varies strongly from country to country and remains limited overall.
