Abstract:Cross-border workers face more obstacles than people who live and work in the same Member State. These obstacles can be categorised under legal and administrative, socio-cultural, accessibility and economic factors. With the rise of COVID-19 and the border-related restrictions that were made as a result it is questioned how it impacts cross-border workers: whether the obstacles cross-border workers experience have changed or whether new problems have risen for cross-border workers due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Therefore, the aim of this research is to study the impact of the COVID-19 restrictions on cross-border workers. The case for this research is the Euregio region. The research question that will be answered in this thesis reads: ‘What was the impact of the COVID-19 restrictions on cross-border workers at the Dutch-German border based on the case of Euregio region in the period December 2020 till May 2021?’. This research question is answered by literature research and three face-to-face interviews. This thesis aims to provide for filling in the gap in literature related to the impact of the COVID-19 restrictions on cross-border workers.
