Clara Rubio & Tanja Strecker (2016) “Young Catalans living in London: ‘You can make lots of money here, but it’s a very hostile city as well’”

‘Labour Mobility’ has become one of the buzz-words in current political discourses regarding solutions to unemployment, especially in crisis-shaken countries. Young people in particular are expected to compete on a European Labour Market, to learn languages and to gain experiences abroad and to keep moving wherever the job offers take them.

In this article we present results from a representative online survey (n: 177) and in-depth interviews with 42 young Catalans living in London. We comment on the profiles of the young people, their reasons for moving to London, their living conditions and evaluation of their stay abroad and their plans for the future.

Keywords: economic crisis, labour market, migration, unemployment
